The Emerging Scholars Award celebrates young women who are high school seniors and who excel in leadership, spirituality and Torah learning. The award acknowledges these young women for their accomplishments and dedication to the Jewish community, while supporting their continued growth. 

Awardees will receive a $2,500 stipend towards their gap year education. They will connect with other prominent Jewish leaders and Torah scholars, including Maharat faculty, alumnae and students, and will participate in Maharat’s Emerging Scholars in Israel Fellowship. Additionally, they will be announced at Maharat’s 11th Annual Semikha Ceremony, being held on June 15, 2023.
