I hearby apply for participation in the Beth El Synagogue Talmud Torah High School Merit Scholarship Program.
1. Meet with your advisor in person for a scheduled appointment once during the fall (by November 5), winter (by February 4), spring (by April 7) to evaluate progress to date. Meetings need to be scheduled at least one week before deadline – don’t wait till the last minute.

3. Successful participants will be announced at the end of each school year.
4. Funds will be available for an approved high school trip to Israel, a BESTT sponsored trip during high school, or upon graduation from public high school for continuing education at an accredited institution of higher learning.
