Need Money for School for the 2017-18 Academic Year?
Apply for a JELF Interest-Free Loan for Higher Education Beginning March 1!
Applications for interest-free loans for higher education (college, graduate school and vocational programs) are available to Jewish students in your area for the 2017-2018 school year from JELF (Jewish Educational Loan Fund).
From March 1 – April 30 (and from September 1 – September 30), the loan application is available on JELF’s website at jelf.org.
JELF loans are need-based and offer “last-dollar” financing, meaning that JELF provides the final dollars that bridge the gap between a student’s total financial resources and the cost of attending school.
To qualify, applicants must be:
The Rosalyn Saltz and Norman Seymour Pliner
General Guidelines and Eligibility
Rosalyn Saltz did not attend college as her family could not afford to send her. While she was always an avid learner and continued to learn independently, her lack of university education was a lifelong regret. Her three daughters, Dr. Patricia Louise Pliner, Dr. Judith Ellen Pliner, and Janice Leslie Pliner, conceived of a fund to help others achieve what their mother dreamed of doing.
The Rosalyn Saltz and Norman Seymour Pliner Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance for post-secondary education to applicants residing in North or South Carolina. Selected recipient(s) must demonstrate commitment and involvement in their chosen field as well as advancing Jewish women in leadership roles. For the academic year 2016-2017, one grant of $2500 will be awarded. Recipients must meet the selection criteria and demonstrate financial need.
