JFLA’s Education Loan program does not fall under the federal student loan forgiveness program. President Biden’s loan forgiveness only applies to federal government loans. JFLA is a non-profit and is not a federal government loan provider.

The JFLA Student loan program will open on April 1, 2023. Loans will be reviewed in the order that they are received.

Please get your completed application in early because limited funding is available.

The 2023 JFLA Student Lending Program has extremely limited funding for nursing students and graduate students. If you are a nursing student or a graduate student you may still apply. Loans will be made on a first come first serve basis.

First time borrowers only: Borrow up to $7,500 with 2 guarantors.

Current JFLA student loan recipients: Two guarantors are required. If you would like to re-apply for another student loan, please email info@jfla.org. Please do not use the online application.
