College Scholarships

The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation is the largest Jewish provider of college scholarships in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The Scholarship Committee of the Foundation awards numerous college scholarships each year based on financial need, academic merit, involvement in extracurricular activities and community service. Some scholarships are university specific, but most allow study at the college or university of the recipient’s choice. Students of all faiths are encouraged to apply.

The application process for the 2019-2020 academic/gap year scholarships is now closed. Click here for other sources of aid.
