The Ronald and Diane Weintraub Study Abroad in Israel Scholarship
The Ron and Diane Weintraub Scholarship enables UA students to participate accredited academic programs in Israel. The Weintraub Scholarship Program is just one component of the Weintraub’s extensive interest in promoting an understanding of Israel among Americans. These long time Tucson residents have contributed extensively to the success of several local, national and international organizations, but Israel has always been central to their interests. They co-founded The Weintraub Israel Center, which is a joint project of The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona, The Jewish Community Center, and The Jewish Agency for Israel. They also founded the Tucson chapter of Parents of North American Israelis, an organization that connects American and Canadian families who have children and grandchildren living in Israel. Both are now retired — Ron from a successful publishing business and Diane (B.S. and M.Ed., University of Arizona) from a distinguished career in real estate — and they now focus on their philanthropic interests, which are having a transformative impact on the lives of many people.
The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies is honored to have Ron and Diane Weintraub as partners in our efforts to provide outstanding learning opportunities in Israel for UofA students. The Weintraub scholars will immerse themselves in learning about and living in Israel. Upon their return, they will always be well-informed sources of knowledge about Israel, its cultures and people.
The Ronald and Diane Weintraub Israel Study Award is intended for students who enroll in a UA accredited study abroad program in Israel. Apply through Scholarship Universe, scholarshipuniverse.arizona.edu, beginning March 2016!
