Other Jewish Charities

The Finnart School House Trust (helping students under 21 years old) - Contact: [email protected]

Finnart Scholarships are to make sure that youngsters are not denied the opportunity to go to college or university through lack of funds.  We would like to be able to help more, but our funds are limited. We are currently supporting 115 Finnart Scholars. The trustees are rigorous in checking the genuineness of applications, all of which have to be supported by the school and referees.  (Do not worry if the school gives you a bad reference as to your aptitude and good behaviour.  We are looking for those in need, not saints.) Eligible Applicants will normally be those going directly from 6th Form to College, who are under 21 at the start of the course. We do not support postgraduate study. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the course, so mostly for 3 or 4 years and occasionally longer, e.g. for medical students. You will be paid termly, subject to regular satisfactory attendance reports from the college or university. (This sounds more daunting than it is: we just want to know you are attending the course, not partying in Ibiza). If you are successful in getting a Finnart Scholarship, you will be asked to sign an undertaking that you will keep the Trust informed of any changes in your circumstances or your studies, including any other grants or financial support.

Jewish Students Aid Trust. (mainly helping postgraduate students) - Contact: [email protected] or click here for the application form.

The Jewish Students Aid Trust are happy to work with the Union of Jewish Students and other charities to assist University Students in financial need. We primarily help post graduate students but will also accept Applications from under graduates who may not be able to receive help from UJS or the Finnart House Trust. We give out scholarships of between £1000 and £3000 to students on full time degree course at UK Universities. Students are expected to maintain contact with us after they have completed their studies and we hope that they can make donations back to our charity in due course. It is only as a result of such donations that we are able to assist more students as our own funds are quite limited.
