African American Jewish Coalition for Justice Minority Scholarship
The AAJCJ Minority Scholarship Fund wants to help provide access to higher education for minority students who wish to pursue a career that will enable them to work for social and economic justice.
Preference will be extended to students who (a) may benefit from culturally sensitive or competent education, or who have previously faced challenges due to cultural or linguistic barriers; (b) students who are pursuing studies that will enable them to work for the benefit of others (e.g., those planning to enter education, human services, public advocacy, religious work, etc.); and (c) students who demonstrate, through writing a short essay, that they have a high potential for success. While it is not required, preference is also given to students who will be attending school in the State of Washington and will be available to appear periodically at Coalition events.
Students are invited to apply for renewable scholarships of up to $1,500 annually, with one-third paid out at the beginning of each quarter (provided that the student has successfully completed the prior quarter). The application process will include a short, written essay followed by an interview with the AAJCJ Scholarship Review Committee. Unless the deadline is extended by the Committee, all application materials must be submitted by June 30th for the academic year that begins in the fall. Generally, two scholarships will be granted each year. For more contact Don Armstrong, Chairperson, at 206-323-0974, or email inquires to email@example.com.
