When JELF alumni pay it forward, we grow stronger. Each year, more former JELF recipients begin to support current recipients.
Help future generations pay it
JELF has provided $16 million to Jewish students. We now have recipients living all over the world!
We want your two cents. Help us make an even bigger impact by taking our Alumni Survey.
With each repayment, JELF lends to other Jewish students in need. We proudly boast our 99% repayment rate - and sincerely thank you!
Whether looking for your first job or trying to find your next career opportunity, JELF's partner agencies proudly offer a multitude of live tools including job search, resume/cover letter, interviewing skills, LinkedIn -- and even one-on-one Career coaching.
We want to hear your story. Someone reading about your experience with JELF might lead to them to apply or donate!
Each year we have over 200 volunteers, many of who are former recipients, who give their time to help Jewish students succeed.
“Going to college gave me my work ethic and being in charge of a research team taught me how to manage people. I owe it all to JELF. JELF was wonderful. Everything from the application on was easy and the people were so helpful. Now, I'm working toward my dream.”
