Receipients of grants from the Tikkun Olam Israel Scholarship Fund who leave prior to completing the program are required to repay their grant amounts in full.

Participants who are dismissed from the program at any time due to violation of program rules or Israeli law will be eligible for a refund at the sole discretion of the Program Director.
