Tzedek America has a relationship with the Jewish Free Loan Association of Los Angeles. Loans up to $3500 are available for Los Angeles residents after admittance to Tzedek America. Also available after 3-months of residency in Los Angeles.
Also , your local synagogue, JCC, Bureau of Jewish Education and/or Federation may have scholarship funds available. Call your local Jewish Federation directly to check on available funds and application procedures. We suggest calling rather than relying upon email.
Tzedek America through our relationship with www.jewcer.com will help you to start a crowd-sourcing campaign to assist in subsidizing some of the costs for your Tzedek America year.
FINANCIAL AID is available upon submission of a copy of the FAFSA form required of college financial aid applicants and a specific request from the family to Tzedek America. Applicants requesting scholarship must apply to two different places for scholarship before applying to Tzedek America for scholarship. Funds are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Financial aid requests are considered only AFTER a student has completed the full application process and has been admitted to the program.
