Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), in partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation (JJF), is pleased to announce the availability of professional development / learning grants for professionals who work with Jewish adolescents.
The Professional Development / Apprenticeship Bursary Program covers some or all of the following expenses, with receipts:
- Event / program registration fees (excluding late registration fees)
- Accommodation costs
- Meals / incidentals
- Land transportation
- Transport costs
The scholarships are non-transferable and may only be used for professional development and professional learning related to the candidate’s responsibilities in serving the Jewish community of Greater Boston.
Depending on available funds, a maximum of $ 1,800 is available for a stipend between January 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021. Opportunities can take place online or in person, and can be offered by a Jewish or non-Jewish source, provided that because the candidate can demonstrate how the identified opportunity is beneficial for the continuation of his work as a Jewish professional. Professionals should apply before the professional development opportunity takes place.
Please complete the Professional Development Grant Application and follow the instructions to include the necessary attachments.
You will be notified within two weeks if you will receive a grant. If you receive a grant, you or your host organization will be reimbursed for the expenses indicated in your confirmation email. You must submit your receipts within four weeks of completing the program. Please note that it may take up to six weeks for checks to be processed after receipt of all documents and receipts.
If you receive confirmation that you will receive a scholarship, you will need to save and submit documents including: 1) your registration to participate in the program, 2) all related receipts (detailed receipts are required) and 3) an assessment including at least a photo of you participating in the professional development / learning opportunity.
If you are interested in developing your skills and are unsure of the best programs for your individual needs, please speak to your supervisor or contact Margie Bogdanow for suggestions tailored to your personal skills and career path.
