For the past 29 years the DJCF has been honoring college scholarship recipients and their generous donors in a celebratory reception.
This year’s reception was virtual. We still extended our sincere appreciation to the donors who make education dreams come true and the remarkable, diverse students who are the recipients of their generosity. This annual event says so much about the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the ways we connect so many together. It’s fitting that the reception committee chose the theme Connecting Community this year.
Hardworking. Determined. Intelligent. Inspiring. These are just a few qualities that describe the recipients. The review committee read applications about students reaching life-long dreams of attending law and medical school, students overcoming immense learning challenges to become first generation college students, young people studying abroad with hopes of working on human rights issues, and more. The challenges did not define these young people, though. It inspired them. But the funny thing is, year after year, the committee awarding these scholarships are the ones left inspired by these young people and grateful to know them.
For 29 years, the DJCF has awarded 875 students with more than $2.5 million in awards for students of all faiths, all backgrounds, studying in many fields. Students can apply annually for the opportunity to lighten financial burdens during their college years while also being recognized by an organization that has built a legacy on helping communities and the people within them.
