What is the cost? The full tuition is $10,000 (USD). The tuition costs for you as a participant can be lowered with the help of a wide variety of scholarships and grants, through community organizations and directly through the program, and we'll help you find that support. We will connect you to fundraising resources and our wide network. As well, we make significant scholarships available directly through Achvat Amim.
This means that you can be living in a major city for a relatively low cost on a program which provides food, lodging, program transportation, insurance, trips throughout the country, guides, teachers, mentors and language teachers as well as volunteer projects that will, no doubt, have a positive impact on this world of ours. We are committed learners, teachers, activists and organizers just like you and we've put together a seriously solid experience while keeping costs low and when you look at the whole cost picture, participating in Achvat Amim is very well within reach and among the least expensive ways of taking part in a program of this kind.
Getting you scholarships and grants Maybe you have student loans, credit cards to pay off or other expenses? We know that a journey like this can seem out of reach, which is why we work with you to help ensure that money is not an obstacle to your participation by seeking out funding from various sources and supporting each participant in identifying funding that works for them to make this an accessible and affordable experience.
We have a long history of success in coaching participants to successfully reach out to their communities and beyond. As well, we've compiled an extensive list of foundations and scholarships to reach out to. We'll discuss this further during the application process.
There is plenty of financial support out there and we are experienced in helping participants raise the funds and find scholarships to join Achvat Amim. We will help you write letters, find contacts and make this happen.
We currently have a special grant opportunity available to UK residents. See below for more details. When and how do I pay? The $500 (USD) deposit is due upon receiving your letter of acceptance. this deposit ensures that you have a spot in the program. The rest of the program tuition is due a month prior to the start date of your cohort.
We will go over all of the above - including scholarships, fundraising, and the rest - during the application process, at which point we cover payment methods and other steps forward.
