Scholarship Program

Supporting the dreams of Jewish scholars since 1972

In partnership with private donors, the JVS Scholarship Program provides qualified Jewish students whose primary residence is in the Greater Los Angeles area with need-based financial aid, in the belief that education represents the first step to career success.

Since the inception of the JVS Scholarship Program in 1972, JVS has awarded more than 6,000 scholarships totaling over $13.4 million. Today’s recipients are pursuing both undergraduate and graduate studies at colleges, universities and vocational schools nationwide.

We are committed to providing as much aid to qualified recipients as possible and encourage students to reapply each year they are in school, so that we may help them throughout their post-secondary education. Today’s recipients are pursuing studies at community colleges, four-year colleges, universities, graduate schools, and vocational schools throughout California and across the country.
