The Atlantic Jewish Council invites applications for Abraham Leventhal Memorial Scholarships. The award will normally be to a maximum of $5000.00 for each application. The biannual application deadlines are May 31st and November 30th. Applicants can apply once in any 12- month period.

Criteria for Application:

  • The applicant must be a resident of Atlantic Canada. For the purposes of this application, this means that the applicant must have resided continuously in an Atlantic Canadian province (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Newfoundland & Labrador) for at least one period of 24 consecutive months not including any time spent enrolled as a full-time student at a post-secondary institution. “Full-time student” means that the applicant was enrolled in a post-secondary education program for at least 60% of the regular course load, or 40% if the applicant is disabled, including internships and practicums.
  • Applicants must be attending a post-secondary institution in the Halifax Regional Municipality. (Please note that the Halifax institution must be the institution from which the applicant expects to receive a degree/diploma).
