JELF Offers Interest-free Loan for Jewish Students Pursuing Higher Education
Do you need help paying for college? JELF (Jewish Educational Loan Fund), a Federation partner agency, is now accepting applications for interest-free loans for Jewish students pursuing higher education, including graduate, vocational or technical school. In order to qualify, applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited US educational institution, be a US citizen (or have lawful immigration status), be in good academic standing with their university and be able to demonstrate financial need via a completed FAFSA application. Applications can be accessed here and must be submitted by Thursday, September 30. JELF recipients often go on to become JELF donors and vital members of the JELF community, helping pay it forward for students in need.
