Registration Subsidy Information

The true cost for each professional to attend HIGA is $2,000 plus travel costs. Through grants, sponsorships and Hillel’s fundraising efforts, registration this year will cost $950 (double occupancy).

Additionally, through support of Hillel Talent Grants, we are offering additional registration fee subsidies outlined below based on the number of professional staff at each Hillel. We are entrusting each Hillel to accurately reflect their staff count when registering. Please do not count the Springboard Fellows in your full staff count as their registration is being subsidized by that program. Each professional who is receiving the subsidy should utilize the discount codes outlined below:

  • Hillel Solo Professionals: Registration is fully subsidized by Hillel Talent Grants.
  • Hillels with 2-5 Professionals: For every professional attending HIGA, Hillel Talent Grants will fully subsidize an additional professional. Limit up to two subsidized registrations per Hillel.
  • Hillels with 6 or more Professional Staff: For every five professionals attending HIGA, the Hillel Talent Grants will cover the full cost of an additional staff person.

Needs Based Scholarships

In addition to the generous general registration subsidies, we are excited to offer needs-based scholarships, funded by Hillel Talent Grants. These scholarships can help close the budget gap to enable Hillels to send an additional professional to HIGA who otherwise would not be able to join. Scholarship requests may be up to $475 per professional (50% of the registration fee) and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. To apply, email Adam Pollack, Program Officer, Hillel Talent Grants, at talentgrants@hillel.org with the following information:

  • Total # of Professionals you want to send to HIGA
  • # Professionals you can currently afford to send to HIGA
  • How much money you’re requesting from the scholarship fund
  • Professional Title of the individual being subsidized to join

If you have any questions, please be in touch with Adam Pollack directly.
