The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee
and the Jewish Educational Loan Fund Offer Interest-Free Educational Loans
(Sarasota-Manatee) Applications for interest-free loans for higher education (college, graduate school and vocational programs) will be available to Jewish students in the Sarasota-Manatee region for the 2016-2017 school year from JELF (Jewish Educational Loan Fund), in partnership with The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, from March 1-April 30. Visit www.jelf.org to learn more.
JELF loans are need-based and offer “last-dollar” financing, meaning that JELF provides the final dollars that bridge the gap between a student’s total financial resources and the cost of attending school. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program leading to a degree or certificate at an accredited institution that is located in the United States, be a U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status in the U.S., and be able to demonstrate financial need (FAFSA application required).
In 2015, JELF granted $800,000 in interest-free, last-dollar loans to 219 students across its five-state region.
