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 CA guarantors over 25 with a steady income and good credit. Please note: loan amounts and residency requirements vary depending on the program. One co-signer for any amount up to $10,000 and two co-signers for anything over $10,000

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.
