Scholarship Service Is Seeking Additional Funds to Aid Students

It's no secret that college
costs have risen dramati-
cally in the past few years.
But college students and
their parents aren't the only
ones feeling the pinch as
tuition costs climb and
housing and other fees show
the effects of inflation.
The Jewish Scholarship
Service, an umbrella organ-
ization of more than 40
student loan funds coordi-
nated by the Jewish Voca-
tional Service under the au-
spices of United Jewish
Charities, is experiencing
an increase in sudent re-
quests far greater than the
increase in available funds.
"For calendar year 1979

we've committed ourselves
to loans exceeding $100,000
for 66 students," said John
L. Greenberg, chairman fo
the Jewish Scholarship
Committee. "By compari-
son, last year we lent
$66,275 to 52 students.
"It's a tribute to our com-
munity that we have such
funds available. But infla-
tion and the rapidly rising
costs of college tuition are
causing problems for us."
Loans are granted on a
basis of economic need.
Applicants, who must be
full-time students at
accredited institutions,
prepare a budget listing
their anticipated ex-

penses and other sources
of income, which may in-
clude family contribu-
tions, part-time jobs, sav-
ings and other schol-
arships or loans.
Applications are re-
viewed at three yearly
meetings of the Jewish
Scholarship Committee,
and an interest-free "loan
package" is prepared from
the subscriptions of several
different funds.
"We have a few major
funds, including
Maimonides Women's Au-
xilliary, which has assisted
117 medical students with
loans of $147,000 since
1949. The National Council

of Jewish Women has con-
tributed a similar amount,"
Greenberg said. "Other
large funds are the Einstein
Fund of Temple Beth El and
the Hebrew Free Loan
Association-Probus Club
fund. A number of the other
funds are administered by
the Jewish Welfare
Federation-United Jewish
Charities Endowment Pro-
Most of the applicants are
graduate students, though
undergraduates may also
"Some of the costs for pro-
fessional programs are just
fantastic," said Greenberg.
"For example, tuition for a
second-year student at the
University of Detroit Den-
tal School is $6,000, and
books, fees and supplies are
another $4,500."
As a result, children from
relatively well-off or middle
class families are applying
to the service for the first
time, he said.
Inflation is also affecting
the rate at which students

can continue to help
these students."
Greenberg pointed out
that a scholarship fund can
be easily established. A
pledge of several thousand
dollars is necessary, but it
can be paid over a period of
several years.
"A person can establish a
fund in honor of a birthday
or anniversary or other
happy occasion or t ,
memorialize a relative
friend," he said.
Anyone who establishes a
fund is eligible to attend the
