MRJ Collegiate Scholarship

Members of Beth-El MRJ feel that it is worthwhile to reward the children of Beth-El Congregation who have invested themselves in the congregation, its organizations, and associated activities. Beth-El MRJ further believes extending that investment into the Jewish community is an important quality. By encouraging these behaviors, the MRJ hopes to reinforce our desire to create future leaders within the Reform Judaism Movement. As such, the MRJ is offering one (1) scholarship to the children of Beth-El Congregation who will be incoming freshmen at a 2-year or 4-year college starting in the fall semester. The recipient will receive a one-time disbursement upon scholarship award to apply to their college expenses.  Click here for the scholarship application.

The application process is open to all graduating high school seniors:

  • Whose family is a member in good standing of Beth-El Congregation

  • Who will enter college in the fall semester of the calendar year in which the scholarship is awarded
