Scholarship for J Street Conference – Apply Today!

The Environmental Peacebuilding Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of New Mexico is sponsoring a scholarship to help a young New Mexican (age 18-25) attend the annual J Street Conference in Washington, DC, from February 25-28, 2017, as a member of WRAP. Environmental peacebuilding promotes peace in areas of conflict by finding a common ground to solve environmental issues that affect all people in the region.

The scholarship of up to $500 will help reimburse travel and accommodations costs for the recipient who will be attending the J Street annual conference. In addition, WRAP will reimburse the scholarship recipient’s conference registration fee. The recipient will help at the WRAP exhibit and information table during part of the conference and will be free to attend most of the conference sessions.
