MIT Hillel Jewish Programming Grant
MIT Hillel's Jewish Programming Grant provides students with resources to plan and execute an independent program to serve the MIT Jewish community. Whether it is a pre-Yom Kippur discussion or a Shabbat dinner in your dorm with your grandmother's matzah ball soup recipe, we are here to help you make it happen and make it meaningful.

Please submit the application well prior to the event (if less than a week and a half, please contact a board member in person). The application includes a description of the event, your publicity plan, your target audience, and a detailed budget. A face-to-face meeting may be required to clarify budget and details.

We review applications on a rolling basis in the order that we receive them. The sooner you submit an application, the sooner you will be notified of the Board's decision.
