About JCF Scholarship Awards
Each year the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. provides Scholarship Awards to deserving recipients who are pursuing higher education.
These financial awards are made possible thanks to numerous JCF donors, many of whom established endowment funds to spinoff annual funding for the important purpose of helping students defray the cost of obtaining degrees, Israel travel, leadership development, or technology purchase (depending on the fund's criteria).
This year, the JCF's Scholarship Committee, chaired by JCF Board member Ed Rivkin, allotted over $38,000 in financial awards to 24 individual recipients. We are excited to announce that this dollar total marks a new record amount awarded by the JCF in one cycle, and that the JCF has now awarded approximately $400,000 to deserving recipients since we started providing awards over 20 years ago. Thank you to our generous awards donors for making this possible!
Rivkin said that the annual JCF's Scholarships Awards program "is for the greater good and it’s helping young adults achieve their academic goals, since, tragically, college expenses continue to rise exponentially over the rate of inflation. By and large people need help, so we are investing in the future."
In addition, Rivkin said, JCF Scholarship Awards "is an opportunity for the community to bind together and endow the program to help ensure that the applicants succeed."
