The following information is not necessary for us to have in hand before transferring you information to the Federation.

Each OTZMA participant is eligible to receive an automatic grant of $4500 from the Masa Israel Journey initiative -- assuming you apply for it and have not used your "Masa" rights in the past. Those participants who can prove that they are independent and not otherwise supported financially can receive an additional $3000 in financial aid from Masa. What's more, qualifying for financial aid is a relatively simple process. Learn more here.
