Student Loans

Educational assistance is a priority for JFLA. Since the establishment of the first Student Loan Program in 1988, JFLA 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 co-signers over 25 with a steady income and good credit. Please note: loan amounts and residency requirements vary depending on the program.

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

For more information please contact Rebecca Marcus at or Adina Kraus at (Valley Office) or if you are interested in our student loan program, fill out a Pre-Application today to get started!
