European Mini-Grants

Graduates of our summer seminars in Europe are eligible to apply for mini-grants of up to $300 for projects in their classrooms, their schools, and their communities. These grants have been  used to support teaching students about the Holocaust, human rights, Jewish life in their country or community, discrimination, tolerance, and respect for diversity. With the help of grants from TOLI, students have read books, watched documentaries and movies, met survivors or their relatives, visited synagogues and museums, written essays, created posters, photo exhibitions and multimedia presentations. Examples of successful grants are found below.

While teachers may continue to apply for mini-grants, individual projects may receive only one grant per year for no more than three years. For more information about how to apply for a mini-grant, participants in TOLI seminars in Europe should contact Oana Nestian-Sandu at
