At JFCS, we annually help hundreds of Jewish students achieve these goals by providing them with loans and grants. In order to apply, you must be Jewish and have been a legal and permanent resident of Sonoma, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, or northern Santa Clara counties for at least two years prior to submitting your application. You must be able to demonstrate financial need based on the FAFSA and you/your family's federal tax return and have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Although not required, candidates who demonstrate a meaningful connection and/or commitment to the Jewish community are desired.
Strengthening individuals. Strengthening families. Strengthening community. That’s what Jewish Family and Children’s Services is all about. Founded in 1850, JFCS is one of the oldest and largest human service agencies in the United States. We are guided by the Jewish traditions of advancing human dignity for everyone, community responsibility, inter-generational ties, and repairing the world. JFCS serves people of all faiths and backgrounds with our comprehensive system of care.
