What makes the Jewish future look so bright?

An Outstanding College Scholarship Opportunity for Emerging Young Jewish Leaders

Through the Brawerman Fellowship, we develop and sustain 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, we select high school seniors who demonstrate academic strength, financial need, and a deep commitment to leadership, community service, and Jewish engagement to become Brawerman Fellows.

Why should you apply?


The deadline for the 2022-2023 academic year has passed and we are no longer accepting applications. Applications for the 2023-2024 academic year will be available in December 2022.
