The Solly Urman Memorial Scholarship is for a Montreal graduate of high school or Cegep who seeks to deepen his or her knowledge of Judaism and Israel by spending a gap year in Israel at a religious Zionist oriented school or university. The scholarship is based on need, scholastic excellence and community involvement.

The scholarship was founded to perpetuate the values of Solly Urman, z’l’ who was a passionate Jew and a strong Zionist, who devoted much time to his community supporting young people.
