DJCF College Scholarship Reception
The DJCF College Scholarship Reception will be held on Thursday, May 24th at 7pm at the Aaron Family JCC at 7900 Northaven Rd, Dallas, TX 75230. This annual event is always meaningful as students and families from all walks of life meet donors, their families, and committee members that help make their education possible. This event is especially thrilling for the committee who have dedicated countless hours evaluating scholarship applications. This is the first time the students identities are revealed. This year two new scholarships will be awarded and there is a likelihood that over 50 scholarships, totaling over $130,000 will be granted that night.
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation takes great pride in the administration of its college scholarship program. These higher education scholarships are open to eligible students from Dallas, Denton, and Collin counties. Students of any and all faiths are encouraged to apply, and then each student is put in the pool for whichever scholarship he/she is eligible. In addition, there are many specialty scholarships to students studying in Israel, at SMU, University of Oklahoma and Texas A&M; as well as Jewish students from Texas towns with two or fewer congregations.
Since the applications are anonymous to insure a fair evaluation process, it is the content of the application that sets this scholarship process apart from other academic awards.
Please contact the Foundation office if you are interested in setting up your own scholarship fund. We would be happy to work with you!
