Applications are now being accepted for the Jean Shuman Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship was established by Edgar Shuman and his family in memory of and in tribute to Jean, wife of Edgar and mother of Linda and Eric Shuman.

The applicants must be current members of Temple David in good standing. Rabbi Symons will administer the scholarship application and selection process. Priority will be given to those students with demonstrated financial need.

Central Scholarship & Loan Referral Service

Financial aid for 2018-19 is available from the Central Scholarship and Loan Referral Service (CSLRS) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. This program is administered by Jewish Family & Children’s Service. The funds are made available through the generosity of families who have established endowments through the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, Jewish Community Center, National Council of Jewish Women, Jewish Women International of Pittsburgh (formerly B’nai B’rith Women), Jewish Home for Babies and Children, The Pittsburgh Foundation, and Rodef Shalom Congregation.

Scholarships are distributed on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Some funding sources also require high academic achievement. In addition, the applicant must be Jewish, reside in Allegheny, Westmoreland, Beaver, Butler, or Washington County for at least two years, and need financial assistance to attend an accredited institution of higher education as either an undergraduate or graduate student.

For school year 2018-19 Central Scholarship will again be using an online application process.
