Through the Sharyn and Stuart Frankel College and Post Graduate College Fund, the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County provides scholarships for students to attend undergraduate and graduate programs at accredited, non-profit colleges or universities.

The scholarship is intended to be the “last resort” funding to supplement student and family contributions, as well as other scholarships, and financial aid.

Applications will be available soon. Please check back.

For an application to be considered complete for committee review, it will include:

  1. Completed Application (one per participant)
  2. A copy of your COMPLETE 2016 Individual Tax Return
  3. Current paystub
  4. A brief Letter of Explanation as to why your family needs financial assistance (space provided on application).

You will be asked to upload these documents at the end of the application.
