Jewish Community Center (JCC) North American Graduate Scholarship
The JCCs of North America Graduate Education Scholarship Program is designed to deepen and enhance the professional knowledge of current and future JCC professionals. Incorporating classroom study, internships, networking opportunities, professional development conferences and seminars, JCC Association Graduate Scholars are on the fast track to become effective and successful JCC professionals.
Full-time students receive up to $10,000 per year for a one or two-year period to pursue graduate studies that lead to a professional career in the JCC Movement.

Acceptable graduate degrees include Jewish communal service, nonprofit management or MBA, public policy, sports management, health and physical education, Jewish studies, social work, early childhood education, and many others.
All graduate scholars must complete a field placement at a JCC during their studies. These placements will be worked out individually with the scholarship coordinator and the JCC. Applicants must be committed to beginning their career in the JCC Movement. Recipients agree to work in the JCC Movement for two years post graduation.
