Scholarships Available For Young Jewish Women Leaders

JCF logoThe Jewish Community Foundation is currently accepting applications for Linda Fenner Young Women’s Scholarships. Applicants must be Jewish women between the ages of 21 and 45 who have been identified as leaders or as having leadership potential in the Jewish community. They must be Colorado residents.  Each year, the Foundation awards up to $5,000 in scholarships; however, the maximum that can be awarded to any one person is $2,500.

The purpose of the scholarships is to enable Jewish young women to participate in educational conferences, missions to Israel, or other young adult programs that will develop their leadership skills. Eligible programs should teach leadership skills, contain creative and interactive elements where Jewish women can network, and build self-esteem.

Fenner, of blessed memory, was a dedicated and enthusiastic leader of the Colorado Jewish community. Her husband, Terry, and her sisters, Blossom Liebowitz and Irma Braman, created the Linda Fenner Young Women’s Scholarship Fund in her honor to promote leadership development programs for young Jewish women. The fund is housed at the Jewish Community Foundation.

The application deadline is Friday, June 14, 2013. Applications may be completed online at www.AJFColorado.org. To learn more about additional scholarships, click here. For more information, please contact Gretchen Koplin at gkoplin@jcfcolorado.org or 303.316.6475
