The Jewish Federation of Omaha is charged with administering the allocation and distribution of scholarship and financial assistance funds entrusted to the community for the benefit of Omaha’s Jewish community. This duty includes the guarantee of confidentiality to the applicants and their families in conjunction with the diligent stewardship of community funds. On an annual basis, the community allocates dollars for financial aid and scholarship. Award decisions are based on the financial need of applicants, the number of requests, and the amount of funds available. All financial aid and scholarship awards require an annual application.
