The Geri and Richard Brawerman Leadership Institute

An Outstanding College Scholarship Opportunity
for Emerging Young Jewish Leaders

Through the Brawerman Fellowship, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles develops and sustains a talent pool of Jewish young leaders for our community in perpetuity. The Fellowship provides an annual $10,000 college scholarship — a total of $40,000 over four years — and participation in a larger program that builds leadership skills and further strengthens Fellows’ connection to Jewish life through retreats, a trip to Israel, and other overseas opportunities.

Each year, The Jewish Federation selects high school seniors who demonstrate academic strength, financial need, and a deep commitment to leadership, community service, and Jewish engagement to become Brawerman Fellows.
