NEED MONEY FOR SCHOOL FOR THE 2017-18 ACADEMIC YEAR? APPLY FOR AN INTEREST-FREE LOAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION!
Applications for JELF’s interest-free loans for higher education (college, graduate school, and vocational programs) are available to Jewish students in the Charleston area for the 2017-2018 school year, in partnership with Charleston Jewish Family Services.
JELF (Jewish Educational Loan Fund) grants need-based, “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:
Enrolled full time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited U.S.
A U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status, and
Able to demonstrate financial need (2017 FAFSA application required).
In 2016, JELF granted $814,070 in interest-free last-dollar loans to 220 students across its five-state region. JELF is proud to serve students in the Charleston Jewish community.
