Supporting the Dreams of Jewish Scholars

In partnership with private donors, the JVS Scholarship Program provides qualified Jewish students whose primary residence is in the Greater Los Angeles area with need-based financial aid, in the belief that education represents the first step to career success.

Since the inception of the JVS Scholarship Program in 1972, JVS has awarded more than 4,900 scholarships totaling over $9.2 million. Today’s recipients are pursuing both undergraduate and graduate studies at colleges, universities and vocational schools nationwide.

We are committed to providing as much aid to qualified recipients as possible and encourage students to reapply each year they are in school, so that we may help them throughout their post-secondary education. Today’s recipients are pursuing studies at community colleges, four-year colleges, universities, graduate schools and vocational schools throughout California and across the country.

The JVS Scholarship application is closed for the 2018–2019 academic year.  The application will reopen January 1, 2019 for the 2019–2020 academic year.
