The Geri and Richard Brawerman Leadership Institute

An Outstanding College Scholarship Opportunity for Emerging Young Jewish Leaders

Through the Brawerman Fellowships, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles will be able to develop and sustain a talent pool of Jewish young leaders for our community in perpetuity. A $10,000 annual college scholarship will be made to Brawerman Fellows, and they will participate in a program that builds leadership skills and further strengthens their connection to Jewish life.

A select group of high school seniors who demonstrate academic strength, financial need and a deep commitment to leadership, community service and Jewish engagement will be chosen each year to become Brawerman Fellows.
