Immediate Financial Need

Slifka can offer grants to students in financial distress. These funds can be used to facilitate access to abortion for Yale students and their family members. Reach out to a member of the clergy team (Rabbi Jason Rubenstein, Rachel Leiken and Rabbi Alex Ozar) to talk through your specific needs.

General Grants and Programming Funding

Slifka also has the resources to support your project or program. Fill out this form to submit an application for a general grant or for funding for a program. Examples of general grants include a stipend to support working an unpaid internship or funding for a production for a play. Examples of programming funding include wanting to host a speaker or putting together an event at Slifka. Please reach out to Aviva Green with any questions.

For grants, there are four deadlines throughout the semester. Applications will be reviewed in between and grant allocations made accordingly. Note that Slifka does not accept grant applications during the summer. If you are in immediate financial need, please reach out to a member of the clergy team.
