Healthcare Scholarship: Jewish Community Center (JCC) North American Graduate Scholarship

Overview of the Jewish Community Center (JCC) North American Graduate Scholarship

The Jewish Community Center (JCC) North American Graduate Scholarship aims to reward and encourage exceptional graduate students who are involved with the JCC North America Movement. The scholarship is awarded each year to full-time students, covering up to $10,000 towards graduate study tuition. The scholarship may be awarded for a one- or a two-year period. As a stated goal of the scholarship program, the grant is intended only for students who wish to pursue a professional career related to the JCC Movement upon graduation.

As a requirement of the scholarship, all recipients must complete a field placement at a local JCC chapter during their studies. Recipients also agree to commit to a full-time paid position within the JCC Movement for two years following graduation. The JCC Movement can assist recipients in finding a job within the organization upon graduation. However, if it is not possible to find a position upon graduation, then the scholarship money reverts to an interest-free loan.

The application for the Jewish Community Center (JCC) North American Graduate Scholarship must be submitted by February 1st. The Scholarship Committee reviews all of the submitted applications in March and finalists interviews are scheduled in April. All travel expenses are covered, to allow finalists to travel to New York for the in-person interview. Scholarship winners are announced in May.

Generally, the scholarship program is only open to individuals who are planning to pursue their first graduate degree. In some specific cases, individuals undertaking coursework for a second graduate degree may also be considered. Otherwise, there are no specific guidelines on the graduate degrees that applicants must pursue. Typically, applicants and winners are enrolled in graduate programs in social work, Jewish communal service, non-profit management or MBA, public policy, health or physical education, sports management, Jewish studies, education, or other fields that can prepare a graduate for a long-term career with the JCC Movement.

In addition to the scholarship program for full-time graduate students, the JCC also offers tuition assistance to current full-time JCC employees who are pursuing part-time graduate work. These scholarships are based on the current JCC salary level and may total up to $2,000 per year. To qualify for the award, the student/employee must remain employed by the JCC throughout the duration of the school term. This tuition assistance may be granted for a period of up to two years.
