Propose One-year Israel Scholarships for Young American Professionals

Formation of a national committee of Zionist and Jewish leaders to sponsor special scholarships for young American Jews for a year of work and study in Israel was announced today by Dr. Emanuel Neumann, president of the Zionist Organization of America.

The ZOA program is being inaugurated as part of the ZOA youth and aliyah program and is designed to familiarize Zionists aged 21-30 with all aspects of life in Israel by enabling them to spend a year in orientation courses and to pursue their professions under conditions approximating those in the United States.
