The Central Scholarship and Loan Referral Service (CSLRS) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh provides need-based scholarships to qualified students in the Greater Pittsburgh area. This program is administered by Jewish Family & Children's Service. These funds are made available through the generosity of families who have established endowments through the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, Jewish Community Center, Jewish Women International of Pittsburgh (formerly B'nai B'rith Women), National Council of Jewish Women, Jewish Home for Babies and Children, The Pittsburgh Foundation, and Rodef Shalom Congregation.
All scholarships are distributed on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Depending on the scholarship fund, factors such as academic achievement, field of study, school attending, and community involvement may also be considered. In addition, the applicant must be Jewish, reside in Allegheny, Westmoreland, Beaver, Butler or Washington County, and need financial assistance to attend an accredited institution of higher education as either an undergraduate or graduate student.
The 2013-2014 CSLRS on-line application is available at http://www.centralscholarship.org. All applications are due February 11, 2013.
