LOS ANGELES, California – The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation has announced a new competition for college students to plan and execute original pro-Israel initiatives, with winners eligible to receive grants of up to $15,000 to fund their ideas. Finalists will present their initiatives at the March 2018 American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
The Milstein Family Foundation Innovation Competition encourages students to submit out-of-the-box, pro-Israel ideas, initiatives, projects, programs, or events that will advance the cause of pro-Israel advocacy on campus and “empower the next generation of pro-Israel advocates to strengthen the State of Israel, the homeland of the Jewish People,” philanthropist Adam Milstein said.
Three finalists will present their initiatives at the Milstein Student Reception at AIPAC. Following the presentations, Milstein Fellows will vote for their favorite project on their mobile devices. The audience favorite will automatically be awarded an additional $1,000. At the end of the reception, the judges will announce their decisions.
Current college students, or groups of college students, must submit a full application before Feb. 9 online: https://goo.gl/forms/cFH9PREuJA8mUZ6p2. On Feb. 16, judges will invite five semi-finalists to submit pitch videos before Feb. 23. The three finalists will be announced on Feb. 27.
