JELF Application For Interest-Free Educational Loans
Deadline for Fall Application period was 9/30/2014; watch for notice of spring application period in March & April 2015 for the academic year 2015-16.
Applications for interest-free loans for post-secondary education (college, graduate school and vocational programs) will be available to Jewish students in the greater western North Carolina area for the 2015-16 school year from the Jewish Educational Loan Fund, in partnership with Jewish Family Services of Western North Carolina. The loan application will be available March 1 – April 30 on JELF’s website at www.jelf.org. JELF loans are need-based and offer “last-dollar” financing, meaning that JELF provides the final dollars that bridge the gap between a student’s total financial resources and the cost of attending school. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited institution that is located in the United States, be a U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status in the U.S., and be able to demonstrate financial need (FAFSA application required). For more information, contact email@example.com or call 770-396-3080.
