About the project

The Louis Edelstein Scholarships for Arts Students assist outstanding students to attend Jerusalem art schools. Each year, approximately 50 scholarships are awarded to students at institutions including the Jerusalem School of Photography, the Nissan Nativ Acting Studio, the Sam Spiegel School of Film & Television, the School for Visual Theater, the Ma’aleh School of Communications, Film & Television Arts, Hadassah College’s School of Visual Communications, Bezalel Academy of Art & Design, the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of Music & Dance and the Center for Classical Oriental Music and Dance. As part of the program, recipients are required to perform community work, which has included conducting creative writing workshops in schools in underprivileged neighborhoods and performing in concerts at community centers, in exchange for the financial support and in an effort to deepen students’ commitment to the city.
