Scholarship Eligibility

It is easy to apply for a scholarship from the Jewish Community Foundation. First, determine whether you satisfy the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be Jewish*
  • Be accepted or currently enrolled at an accredited institution of higher learning in the United States  (or associated with a U.S. institution)
  • Be a current resident of the Greater Hartford, CT region
  • Be a citizen of the United States

Specific funds may include unique criteria such as academic interest or community service experience. We will review your general application with these unique criteria in mind and match your needs with the right scholarship funds for you.

*At least one parent is Jewish and applicant identifies as being Jewish or applicant has gone through a formal conversion to Judaism.

The Anne E. Wall Scholarship is open to all residents of Bloomfield, CT regardless of religious affiliation with demonstrated financial need. The June Miller Rosenblatt Scholarship is open to all residents of Greater Hartford regardless of religious affiliation with demonstrated financial need who are pursuing a major that will lead to a career in education.

Scholarship Application Confidentiality

All scholarship awards are confidential and a recipient’s name would become known only with his or her express permission.


Awards normally range from $1,000 to $3,000.

Deadline and Notification

The scholarship application for the upcoming academic year will open January 2024 and must be completed no later than May 15th.

The Scholarship Committee meets to review the applications on an anonymous basis, and considers each application for the funds for which the applicant is eligible.

Notification of awards or denial of scholarships is typically in June.

Expectations of Recipients

Recipients of Jewish Community Foundation scholarships, except for reasons of health or other emergency, are expected to complete the year of study for which the scholarship is awarded. Failure to fulfill this commitment will require a refund of the amount expended on the student’s behalf.

We ask that recipients send acknowledgment letters to the donors who made the scholarship(s) possible.
