Press release from the Jewish Family Services:
Applications for interest-free loans for higher education (college, graduate school and vocational programs) are available to Jewish students in your area for the 2017-2018 school year from JELF (Jewish Educational Loan Fund).
From March 1 – April 30 (and from September 1 – September 30), the loan application is available on JELF’s website at jelf.org.
JELF loans are need-based and offer “last-dollar” financing, meaning that JELF provides the final dollars that bridge the gap between a student’s total financial resources and the cost of attending school.
To qualify, applicants must be:
Enrolled full time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited U.S. institution
A U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status
Able to demonstrate financial need (2017 FAFSA application required).
