JFEW Fellowship

The Jewish Foundation for the Education of Women (JFEW) is a private, nonsectarian organization that provides scholarships to women with financial need living in the New York City area. This scholarship is granted to women who intend to pursue teaching careers in mathematics or science in New York City public schools (two students per academic year). JFEW recipients are selected by a faculty committee at Teachers College and, if awarded, receive a scholarship in the amount of (at least) $42,000. Upon graduation, recipients must commit to teaching in a New York City public school for at least two years and be a New York City resident, or live within 50 miles of New York City. Students eligible for JFEW consideration will be contacted by the Office of Financial Aid before the start of the upcoming fall semester.

Please note: students must successfully complete and submit their application for admission to Teachers College before they may apply for the JFEW Fellowship.

Those who wish to be considered for the JFEW Fellowship must submit the JFEW Interest Form by March 17th, 2014. Please email your completed form to
