Interest-Free College Financial Aid Available
Do you need assistance paying for college? How about graduate, vocational or technical school? The Jewish Educational Loan Fund (JELF), a Federation partner agency, can help. JELF provides interest-free loans to Jewish students for higher education. To qualify, applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited U.S. educational institution, be a U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status and be able to demonstrate financial need (2019 FAFSA application required). High school seniors and current college students can apply here through April 30 for assistance for the 2019-2020 academic year.
