Diller Teen Awards
Each year, 15 teens are given awards based on their exceptional leadership and contributions to their communities. Eligible students must demonstrate projects they have initiated that result in making the world a better place to live. Each selected teen will receive a monetary award to be used to support their education or to help finance a social project.
The award program began in 2007, created by San Francisco Bay Area philanthropist Helen Diller. Through the Helen Diller Foundation, Diller continues to support the efforts of young future leaders who, like herself, foster projects that invigorate their Jewish heritage. Diller strongly believed in supporting social responsibility, medical research, cultural and artistic endeavors for the Jewish community.
Eligible teens must be actively involved in projects that support the Jewish community, and must excel academically. Candidates may be nominated by any community member who is familiar with their project or may also nominate themselves.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $36,000.
