The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards celebrate tikkun olam, or repairing the world. The Diller Family Foundation knows that supporting Jewish teen leadership today means creating and inspiring future generations of strong Jewish leaders in the global community. The Awards provide $36,000 for each recipient so that they may use it to further their project or education. If the funds will be used towards education, they will be sent directly to the college or university. Some recipients choose to divide the award between their education and philanthropic work. Applicants must demonstrate leadership via a specific community service project that is already underway. Applications presenting a project that has not yet been initiated will not be considered. Applicant must self-identify as Jewish. Examples of past recipients' work can be found on our website, http://www.dillerteenawards.org.
