Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards

Scholarship Sponsored by Helen Diller Family Foundation

Value: $36,000
Awards Available: 15
Deadline : Jan 05, 2023

The Awards recognize up to fifteen Jewish teens who are outstanding leaders in community service with awards of $36,000 each. We seek teens showing significant initiative and leadership in creating and leading a new initiative – or who have considerably deepened or expanded an existing project - that embodies the values of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

The Helen Diller Family Foundation created the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards in 2007. The family's primary focus is to support education, science, and arts and they've donated and helped fund programs and institutions around the world. They created this specific program to help support and thank Jewish teens leading remarkable tikkun olam work.

Who can apply for the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards?

A) Aged 13-19

B) Currently serving in a leadership role on a project/initiative aimed at repairing the world

C) Self-identify as Jewish

D) Volunteering without any compensation

E) Residents of the United States

Note: Teens who have created and co-led projects with others are welcome to apply individually for the Tikkun Olam Award. In such cases, each applicant will be considered and evaluated separately, and no more than one applicant per project will be chosen as an award recipient.

We encourage teens to apply and use the application as a tool to consider the elements of your work that are strong as well as your areas for growth. Many teens have said that it's a significant experience just to be nominated and recognized for their work. Others have also said that the process of filling out an application and articulating their ideas on paper was beneficial and helped them move their project forward. And, some teens who ultimately received the award were surprised that they were selected, thinking that they wouldn't receive the award amongst the other impressive applicants.
