The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and its affiliates provide a variety of scholarships to students regardless of age or faith. While the majority of scholarships are for students from the tri-county area (Collin, Dallas, and Denton), there are many exceptions. This year there are over 70 scholarship awards eligible to be awarded. Many have different criteria so there is a long set of eligibility questions to review.
To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be both:
- A full-time student attending school the following semesters, Fall of 2023 and Spring of 2024
- An American citizen or an individual who has achieved legal status to reside in the US
AND You can say YES to at least ONE statement for the next school year:
- I have resided in Collin, Dallas, or Denton Counties within the last 12 months.
- I will be taking a Holocaust class in the upcoming school year and am from anywhere in the United States.
- I will be attending one of the following next fall: a local community college, The University of Texas at Dallas, The University of Oklahoma, Texas A&M in College Station, SMU, or UT Southwestern Medical Center.
- I am a student studying archival education and related subjects in undergraduate, graduate, or graduate certificate programs in the United States.
- I am a Jewish student enrolled next fall in a School of Veterinary Medicine anywhere in the United States.
- I am a Female student majoring in business or entrepreneurship anywhere in the United States.
- I am a Doctoral or Masters student conducting extensive research on special education for children and studying within the state of Texas.
Other criteria are detailed in the application. High school seniors, and undergraduate and graduate students of any and all faiths are encouraged to apply.
Although there are many scholarships, only one application is required per student. The questions are designed to allow each applicant to be considered for every scholarship for which they are eligible. Applications are to be filled out by the student, not the parent or teacher, as this can affect the scoring process.
This year, there is the opportunity to award over 70 college scholarships based on financial need, academic merit, involvement in extracurricular activities, and/or community service for the 2023-24 school year. Most scholarships allow study at the college or university of the recipient's choice. In addition to general scholarships, there are specific scholarships for those studying the following fields: veterinary medicine, medical, law, education, fashion merchandising, nutrition, and Jewish studies.
