Central Scholarship Online applications due by Feb. 11

The deadline is approaching for students wishing to apply for community scholarships through Central Scholarship and Loan Referral Service (CSLRS). Applications for the 2013-2014 school year are due by Monday, February 11.
One application, which must be completed online at centralscholarship.org, gives students access to numerous community scholarships. CSLRS staff must interview first-time applicants.
CSLRS, a need-based scholarship program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh administered by Jewish Family & Children’s Service, coordinates the efforts of a group of organizations, agencies and scholarship endowment funds which provide scholarships to local Jewish students enrolled in accredited institutions of higher education.
Any Jewish high school senior or students enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate or technical school with demonstrated financial need and living in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Washington and Westmoreland counties can apply. Applicants must be a resident of one of these counties for at least two years before applying.
Last year, CSLRS awarded $395,249 in scholarships to 203 area Jewish students.
In addition to administering CSLRS for the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, JF&CS awards additional scholarships from the JF&CS Sarah & Tena Goldstein Memorial Scholarship fund.
