2019 College Scholarship Reception
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the Southwest Community Foundation recently hosted its 28th Annual Scholarship Reception. The night brought together scholarship donors, committee members, scholarship recipients and their families for an inspirational evening. After navigating a fully anonymous selection process, the wait was over for recipients, committee members and donors alike as they found out who the recipients were! After learning more about the student recipients, the future looks brighter knowing they are the next generation of leaders. We are proud to be part of their journey.
This year's scholarship recipients include medical and law students, future teachers and engineers, and many other undergraduate and graduate students who come from a variety of backgrounds, faiths, and expertise. The majority of the scholarships were based on financial need, academic merit, extracurricular involvement, and/or community service. Through 37 different funds, 50 scholarships were awarded this year.
Since 1991, the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and the Southwest Community Foundation has awarded over $2 million in scholarships, helping over 766 students attain college degrees. Each scholarship fund was created based on the donor's vision, so no two scholarships are alike. Please contact the Foundation if you are interested in your own personalized legacy or to honor someone you love. We would be happy to work with you!
