College Scholarships

Kapson and Roland Scholarships available for Jewish students

This year, 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 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. Scholarship amounts are based on need and number of applicants.

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 be awarded to applicants matriculating to Indiana University who have demonstrated academic achievement 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.

Neil and Leah Silver Advanced Degree Scholarship

For our graduate students we have the Neil and Leah Silver Advanced Degree Scholarship.

This fund provides support for a scholarship for Jewish students from our service area to attend an accredited university graduate program. Unlike the Kapson and Roland Scholarships, this scholarship is available to students attending universities outside the state of Indiana.

If you have been thinking about going back to school to get a master’s degree or to pursue a doctorate but have shied away due to the rising costs of higher education, thanks to the Silvers, the Federation may be able to help make this a reality.

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.
