ESSEX Scholarship - For Long Term Outbound Students


The ESSEX Scholarship Program was established to make exchange possible for students whose family could not otherwise afford the program.  While we realize the amount we give is not large, we do feel that any assistance given by ESSEX should be to students who truly have a financial need.     


* If awarded the Essex Scholarship the proceeds of the scholarship, for the American Student. will be sent directly to Tzell Youth Exchange to go towards the students airline tickets. An invoice for the balance of the air ticket will be sent to the Student and Parents for payment. No funds will be given directly to the student.




Scholarships shall be available to full year ESSEX outbound students only.  The committee will place an emphasis on financial need with a secondary criteria being academic potential.  The committee recommends that you ask yourself   “Is it possible for me to participate in the program without financial aid?   If the answer is  no, please contact your District Chair or District Outbound Coordinator if you have any questions, and for details on how to apply.



Deadline:     Students must have their completed Scholarship application submitted to their District Chair by March 15th.
