Student Loans

Educational assistance is a priority for Jewish Free Loan Association. Since the establishment of the first student loan program in 1988, Jewish Free Loan Association has assisted more than 3,000 students with interest-free loans totaling more than $8 million.

We are proud to offer interest-free loans to students of all faiths in the greater Los Angeles area. Loans are available for technical, vocational and trade school and undergraduate and graduate education. Loan amounts average $3,000, with reduced payments while students are in school, increasing three months after graduation. Students must be enrolled full-time with a GPA over 2.5 and two California guarantors over 25 years old with steady incomes and good credit.

Please note: loan amounts and residency requirements vary depending on the program. One guarantor is needed for any amount up to $3,500. Two guarantors are required for loans over $3,500.

Larger, interest-free loans, up to $10,000 are now available for undergraduate students! Learn more.

Loans are also available for Israel Experience Programs and Jewish teen tours.
