Kapson and Roland Scholarships available for Jewish students
This fall, The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley will once again award scholarships to Jewish students in our service area from the Craig and Carol Kapson Scholarship Fund and the Lillian and Harvey Roland Trust.
The Kapson Scholarship helps a Jewish students from our area attend a university, college or technical institute in Indiana. A committee of Jewish community members will review eligible candidates based on the motivation of the student to receive a higher education along with merit and financial needs. The Scholarship Fund will allow a new student each year to be awarded $2,500, with the remaining funds to be divided between other students with a minimum distribution of $750 per student.
The Lillian and Harvey Roland Scholarship Fund serves the purpose of providing higher education scholarships to matriculating college students of parents who are either active in the Jewish community and are contributors to the Jewish Federation. This Scholarship will provide $750 to a student matriculating to Indiana University who have demonstrated academic scholarship and financial need.
Interested students should contact the Jewish Federation for information about applications. You may also print and mail the application to The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley, 3202 Shalom Way, South Bend, IN 46615. Download the application here.
