In addition to our own scholarship funds, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia has formed the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools, through which it distributes funds from Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs. The International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. (ISTS) processes all the EITC/OSTC applications for the Foundation. If you qualify for EITC/OSTC, you must complete this application. The JBHA Tuition Adjustment Committee may modify or withdraw your financial aid award if you do not apply for this additional scholarship.

The EITC/OSTC online application is available as of February 15, 2019. To access the Foundation for Jewish Day School EITC/OSTC application, please click here.
