FEREP Graduate Scholarship Program

The Federation Executive Recruitment & Education Program (FEREP) Scholarship is available to full-time graduate students attending any accredited university in the United States or Canada. In order to be eligible, you must pursue a masters degree in non-clinical social work, public administration or nonprofit management combined with graduate-level Jewish studies.

The program awards up to $40,000 for specified areas of graduate study in return for a minimum two-year paid work commitment in a North American Jewish federation following graduate school. FEREP also provides supplemental professional and cohort development opportunities, and assists students with the placement process leading to their first federation position. There are three ways in which you can fulfill the Jewish study requirement: pursue a joint degree, where one of the above professional degrees is combined with a masters in Jewish Studies or Jewish Communal Service; pursue a professional degree and a Certificate in Jewish Studies or Jewish Communal Service; design a Jewish study plan of your own that meets the requirement for relevant, graduate-level study. In addition, you must have been awarded a bachelors degree with a minimum 3.0 GPA and maintain a minimum 3.0 graduate GPA.

Applications are due February 14th.
