Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance For RHA Families

If you are not in a position to afford full tuition, we encourage you to apply for financial assistance through one of two paths.

Path 1: Generations Trust Scholarship

UJA Federation’s new Generations Trust Scholarship will make Jewish day school more affordable for many families in our community.
If you have not qualified in the past for tuition assistance or even considered the possibility of tuition relief, now is the time to explore a Generations Trust Scholarship!
Who qualifies?
Applicants must have one, two, or three children between JK and grade enrolled at the same time in one or more of UJA’s funded Jewish day schools.

How does the scholarship work?

The Scholarship sets a household tuition cap linked to one’s household income. This cap represents a family’s maximum total tuition fee for up to three students. It will not change if you have one, two, or three students enrolled.
Want to know if your family qualifies?
Find out in just minutes! Visit the Generations Trust Scholarship website to use the quick and anonymous scholarship calculator, which can estimate your eligibility and how much you can expect to pay in day school tuition with a Generations Trust Scholarship.

Path 2: Tuition Assistance Program

Families who do not qualify under Generations Trust Scholarship can apply for tuition assistance through JCAP.
Who qualifies? Applicants with students in Grades 1-12 enrolled in one or more of UJA’s funded Jewish day schools.

Applicants with students in JK-SK can also use the portal to apply for a reduced rate which is subsidized by RHA.

How To Apply For Either Program

Use this link to go directly to the UJA Community Scholarship portal. For new families, create a login by selecting “Register Here”. For families who have applied in the past, use your login to sign in.
