About The Samuel Lemberg Scholarship Loan Fund
Established in the late 1940's, the Samuel Lemberg Scholarship Loan Fund provides interest-free loans to aid Jewish undergraduate and graduate college students who exhibit exceptional academic achievement and face financial difficulties pursuing a higher education.  These loans must be repaid within ten years of graduation or termination of studies.

Amount of Loans
$5,000 is the maximum loan, with a possibility of renewing annually for the duration of (full time) undergraduate or graduate studies.

Jewish students enrolled or enrolling (upcoming year) in full time, accredited undergraduate or graduate study institutions, pursuing academic or professional courses leading to a recognized degree.
