I’ve been thinking a lot lately, and I think it might be a very rewarding experience to travel to Israel at some point (maybe this summer). I feel in a lot of ways that current US exposure to the problems and events happening there are just not satisfactory, and I’d like to see first hand what’s going on, and talk with people who live there.
That being said, I’m poor. Cost of tickets alone would be prohibitive, I imagine.
So, are there any ways for someone to get some sort of grant money to travel to Israel? I have some writing/photography/music skills; might there be a way to utilize those in an effort to get a grant to travel?
And, in a more general sense, does anyone know how one might go about finding if there is money sitting around waiting for me to pick it up and use to get myself to Israel?
