criteria for student loans from
the government have caused
a greater number of middle
class students to apply to
JELS. The area of study for
these students ranges from
music and social work to
medicine, computers and
physical therapy.
Laura Greenberg knew at a
very young age that she
wanted to become a doctor. As
a student at the University of
Michigan, enrolled in the
Honors College, "I became
acutely aware that my college
savings would not last as long
as I had hoped," says Laura.
"I decided to get started on
medical school as soon as I
could. Tuition kept going up."
She completed four years of
college in three and was ac-
cepted at Wayne State
medical school. While at U-M,
she worked in the cafeteria
and the Behavioral Phar-
macology Lab, stretching her
money as far as it would go.
Summers were spent with the
Fresh Air Society at Camp
Tamarack.
With the remainder of her
college savings, and living at
home, Laura began medical
school. At the start of her se-
cond year, she decided to
share an apartment with
another student, taking the
smaller bedroom, and paying
less. She did not qualify for a
student government loan.
"My mother loaned me the
tuition money. There is no
time to work when you're in
medical school and I really
needed some help," says
Laura. "That's when I found
out about JELS."
transportation,
Food,
clothing, books, and all the
unseen costs were discussed
with Ms. Davis. "She is so
understanding and very
ready to make you feel they
can help you," adds Laura.
"Without the loan from
JELS, I would have had to
take a year off and work to
get enough money to continue
in school"
Laura will review her finan-
cial situation again next fall
with Ms. Davis, as each stu-
dent does, and "hopefully,"
says Laura, "they will still be
able to help me. I plan to pay
this loan back very soon after
graduation, so I can do the
same for someone else who
really needs help!'
The , JELS coordinator
works closely with the finan-
cial aid departments of each
college and university, and
also assists students and
their families in developing a
realistic financial plan for the
school year.
Individuals and organiza-
tions have established
scholarship funds for JELS

ment department. Donors
have included the National
Council of Jewish Women,
Greater Detroit Section; Ruth
Franklin Einstein Educa-
tional Fund of Temple Beth
El; and Women of
Maimonides Medical Society.
With his studies at Wayne
and a rotation schedule at
Grace Hospital, Anthony's
days are very full. He looks
forward to entering internal
medicine someday soon.
"After my experience with
JELS, having always felt they
had a special interest in me,
I hope to reciprocate and help
another student like me.
JELS has given me peace of
mind and the comfortable
margin I needed!" ❑
