Bronfman fellowship offer

From the Chicago JUF :

The Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel is now accepting applications for its 20th summer. The fellowships offer 26 outstanding students entering grade 12 from diverse Jewish backgrounds five weeks of intensive study and travel in a program designed to develop future community leaders committed to Jewish unity.
After participating in seminars and dialogues with diverse rabbinic faculty throughout Israel, and spending a week with Israeli peers chosen as part of the Israeli Youth Fellowship, Amitei Bronfman, fellows commit to 40 hours of community service when they return home.
In his recent book, “What It Really Takes to Get Into Ivy League and Other Highly Selective Colleges," Chuck Hughes lists the BYFI first in discussing “the top scholarship programs particularly noted for producing winners who year after year are among the strongest candidates for admissions to highly selective institutions."
Applications for 2006 are available online at www.bronfman.org. High school students in the United States and Canada who will be in the twelfth grade in the fall of 2006 may apply.
The program is funded by The Samuel Bronfman Foundation (TSBF), an active supporter of Hillel: The Foundation for Campus Jewish Life, The Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel, The Curriculum Initiative, and MyJewishLearning.com
