Host Your Own: JewPAC

Jewish Programming Allocation Committee (JewPAC)

JewPAC is a micro-grant program to help fund and support students to plan and create Jewish experiences at Penn State. This means Penn State Hillel will provide the resources (Jewish content and reimbursements) to curate YOUR initiatives in YOUR communities! Students can apply for funding through the form below.

This includes (but is not limited to) meals to celebrate the holidays or Shabbat, Jewish discussions, Israel programming, and other religious/cultural experiences. For a more complete list of ideas, click here.

Thank you for all your events this spring! We’ll see you this summer and fall.
