2019 NCJW Scholarship Application

Step 1 of 4

  • Dear Student,

    We are pleased to send you the 2019 NCJW Scholarship application. This is a need-based scholarship that is awarded to multiple students, with the exception of one award: the Selma Gleit Memorial Scholarship for Women in STEM. The Gleit Award is presented to a Jewish female graduating high school senior or college student who has demonstrated excellence and commitment in science, technology, engineering and/or math, without consideration of need.

    Please note that you may apply for the scholarship right here via the website or choose to download the FULL APPLICATION. The application, including a copy of your most recent transcript and college financial aid award letter(s)*, must be completed by Friday April 19th. We regret we cannot consider application packets without these documents. If printing the application, please make sure that applications are legible, using black pen (or computer), and submit materials to Barbara Peisner at the address listed below.

    Successful applicants will be notified of their scholarships on or around May 15th. Scholarships will be presented at Temple Beth El in Portland, Maine at an evening event in the middle of June.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to call or email me if you or your parents have any questions.
