Scholarships

Hazon is pleased to offer scholarships for people from the Denver and Boulder areas to a selection of multi-day Hazon events happening around the country and in Israel.

As a scholarship recipient, we ask that you will identify specific ways to “pay it forward” and use your experience at the Hazon event to grow and strengthen the local Colorado Jewish outdoor, food, farming, and environmental movement.

Scholarships are first come, first served, and applications are accepted for all events at all times. You can receive up to $500 in scholarship and we will reimburse your expenses for attending the retreats (registration and/or travel). We have a limited pool of scholarships available, so please apply for only what you need!
