Student Scholarships


Har Shalom Center for Jewish Living strongly supports the value of educating every Jewish child in the area, regardless of financial ability. Although tuition is necessary to meet our expenses, it should not be an educational barrier. We understand that tuition fees may be difficult for some families to pay. We want to work with you to ensure that both of our financial needs are addressed. There is a scholarship fund to support Har Shalom members who need assistance.

Please note:

  • The maximum scholarship available is 70% of ONLY the tuition amount for the year. Fees and pizza plan are not eligible for scholarship assistance.
  • Families are responsible for 30% of the tuition amount and must be enrolled in ACH auto-pay program to be approved.
  • Scholarships remain active for the entire school year and need to be reapplied for each fall.
  • Students must maintain 80% attendance to keep scholarship active. That means no more than 6 absences for Sunday students and 10 absences for Sunday/Wednesday students.
  • All scholarship applications are due September 29th. Recipients will be notified by October 6th regarding the decision of their application.  

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-24 school year.
