Masa Israel Journey provides universal Masa grants and needs-based scholarships to eligible Israel By Design participants to reduce the cost of the program. The minimum requirement for a Masa program is 4+ months for Jewish young adults between the ages of 18-30. If you have been on a program previously for longer than 4 months, you are not eligible for a Masa grant.
