The Stephanie G. Hoffman Scholarship Fund has noticed how important it is to financially support minority students who are struggling with high education expenses.
Many of them have excellent academic performances and are in good standing, but have financial difficulties which highly affect the pursuant of higher educational goals.
So, the scholarship committee has determined to offer The Stephanie G. Hoffman Scholarship annually to a most deserving candidate.
The scholarship is available thanks to the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund
One or more scholarships of $1,000 – $5,000 is expected to be given annually and the number of awardees is to be determined prior to the beginning of the application procedure.
The main aim of the award is to support young Jewish people and to encourage them to work with underserved children to excite them through reading to pursue higher education.
It is very significant that you follow the updated details related to the application procedures and guidelines, as they are prone to change.
The scholarship is available only to those applicants who meet the eligibility requirements.
Those are Jewish high school seniors, undergraduates, or graduate students accepted to or attending an accredited college or university program.
They must be pursuing a major in library science, literature, or a related field to be considered for the award.
The Stephanie G. Hoffman Scholarship residency requirements are that only applicants whose permanent residence is in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, which includes San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Marin, Napa, and Sonoma Counties are eligible to apply.
If all eligibility requirements are met, past recipients may reapply for the award.
Considering the fact that you now have determined your eligibility, you are highly encouraged to apply.
Otherwise, your application will be rejected, so you are suggested not to waste your time.
