To accommodate scholarship recipients and coordinate with institutional funding deadlines, Oregon Jewish Community Foundation’s scholarship committees have changed several application deadlines, with most applications now due March 1.
In another change for higher education scholarships, applicants now need to fill out only one application. Their application will be automatically submitted to each scholarship fund for which they qualify, based on scholarship guidelines. Campership applicants need to fill out the separate campership application.
The guidelines for each scholarship and the new deadlines are as follows:
Krichevsky Scholarship: The late Arthur Krichevsky was a long time resident of Portland and established this scholarship in 1996. The scholarship funds Jewish Day Schools in Portland (grades 1 and above), the Oregon Board of Rabbis Teen Israel Experience program and provides small scholarships (typical award is $500) for students pursuing post-high school Jewish study through qualified programs offered by accredited educational institutions in the United States.
The majority of scholarship dollars will be allocated to the first two categories. The Krichevsky Scholarship does not fund Israel trips other than the Teen Israel Experience.
Deadlines are: Oregon Board of Rabbis Teen Israel Experience Scholarship, March 1; Krichevsky Jewish Higher Educational Scholarship, March 1; Jewish Day School Scholarship. May 1.
