The Foundation envisioned, developed, built and created the Abraham Scholars program, the first Jewish international education fellowships focused exclusively on identifying and nurturing future American Jewish leaders. The scholarship encourages post graduate advanced study in Israel. A unique and prestigious scholarship is awarded to a limited number of college students to study Torah in Israel for one to two years following graduation. The program was so successful that one of the largest family foundations in the world began investing millions of dollars into scholarships based on the Abraham Scholar model.
Carey Wolchok came up with the idea of the Abraham Scholars program as a tool to focus the giving of the Foundation to select leading students. He named the scholarship in honor of his former father-in-law, West Palm Beach philanthropist S. Daniel Abraham, the founder of Slim Fast Foods company and Thompson Medical Corporation, with whom he enjoyed a long and deep friendship for more than a decade.
