Applications for the 2021-2022 are now closed. Applications begin in spring quarter each year.
We are pleased to inform you of the partial tuition, need-based scholarships that are available for Jewish undergraduates attending the University of Washington. The Berol-Shindell Scholarship has been established at the Hillel Foundation for Jewish Life at the University of Washington.
This scholarship was created when Mr. Berol was forced to forego his studies at the University of Washington to help provide for his family’s welfare. The scholarships are, therefore, being offered to undergraduate Jewish students in financial need who plan to attend, or are currently attending, the University of Washington.
Hebrew Free Loan Association
HFLA makes higher education loans of $7,500 that have no-interest and no fees for Jewish students in Washington State.
HFLA is dedicated to supporting the Jewish community of Washington State during this time of uncertainty. Loan interviews will be through web conferencing. More than ever, repayment terms will take into consideration the uncertainty of this period of time, and your individual circumstances. We are a safety-net program, not a bank, and our goal is to help you through this time.

Hillel International Scholarships
Hillel International’s mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people, and the world. One way in which Hillel fulfills this mission is by helping incoming freshmen and current college students pay for the cost of college.
Scholarships are open to students who identify as Jewish, who are attending or preparing to attend four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada, and meet the individual scholarship requirements. Learn more here.
