Applying for Scholarships
The JCF proudly offers Scholarship & Emerging Leader Awards to the SNJ community.
About Our Awards
The Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. provides annual Scholarship & Emerging Leader Awards for deserving recipients in Burlington, Camden, & Gloucester Counties in Southern New Jersey.
These awards have been created by generous individuals, families, and/or organizations who had the foresight and dedication to help others achieve their educational or career goals. To do so, they utilized the services of the JCF to establish endowment funds that generate monetary awards every year for generations on end.
A volunteer committee reviews the applications to determine which applicant(s) best exemplify each available award.
All awards are for one year. Award winners may reapply if interested and if they still qualify.
What Types of Awards Does the JCF Provide?
The JCF offers two broad categories of awards:
Scholarship Awards: Individuals in high school and college may apply to as many scholarship awards as they may qualify for, in order to receive financial assistance to further their educational endeavors
Emerging Leader Awards: Rabbis, agency directors, and other community leaders may nominate an individual to receive an emerging leader award to provide financial assistance towards personal/professional development
