I further understand that all sessions are mandatory, and I will only be permitted 2 excused absences where the lead instructor is notified at least 24 hours beforehand. For each subsequent class I miss after the two excused absences, the total amount of stipend I will be eligible to receive will be reduced by 15% per session.
In order to be a full participant in each class, I understand that I will need a working internet connection and will need to keep my Zoom video on for the duration of the class.
Finally, I understand that upon completion of the program I will receive a $1500 USD credit towards participation in programs run by USY or Nativ, and the funds may be used for a single program or multiple programs. If I choose to participate in a program not run by USY or Nativ upon completion, I will receive a $750 USD stipend for a single program run by an approved Jewish education provider.:
