Loans Are Available
For College Students
College loans are still available for the
2011-2012 school year through the Jewish
Educational Loan Service (JELS). Loans
are need-based, interest-free and available
to Jewish residents of Metro Detroit.
To qualify for a JELS loan, applicants
must be full-time students pursuing an
undergraduate, graduate or professional
education; able to document financial
need; attend an accredited college or uni-
versity in Michigan (unless a comparable
education is not available in Michigan);
and demonstrate academic progress
toward a career objective.
JELS is funded through a partnership
of more than 80 private funds and phil-
anthropic service organizations. More
than 100 students were assisted with JELS
loans in the previous school year.
JVS also provides counseling to fami-
lies about financial aid options available
through state, federal and private sources.
For information and application
requests, contact JELS Coordinator
