Jewish Day School Scholarships
The Jewish Community Federation (JCF) provides needs-based scholarships to Jewish children attending qualified Jewish day schools in the Federation Service Area (Sonoma and Marin Counties, San Francisco and the Peninsula: Sunnyvale and north).
Day school scholarships are intended to provide “last resort” community resources above and beyond what is contributed by families and individual day schools.
How to apply

Applicants will be notified about award decisions directly by the school.
