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 from all walks of life meet donors, their families, and the committee members that helped make their scholarship possible. This event is especially meaningful for the committee who have dedicated countless hours evaluating scholarship applications. This is also the first time the students identities are revealed.
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 small 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. And because no one's identity is revealed until the reception, it is an especially exciting night for everyone invovled in the process.
Please contact the Foundation office if you are interested in setting up your own scholarship fund. We would be happy to work with you!
