lester robert morss scholarship
CJC is happy to announce the Lester Robert Morss Scholarship for Jewish Studies. Lester Morss was a chemist and a life-long scholar who believed in the power of knowledge to change the world, in the spirit of Tikkun Olam. He was committed to promoting academic scholarship and assisting those who are less fortunate. After he passed away in 2014, family and friends joined together to establish a scholarship fund to assist high school and college students who wish to pursue study in Israel through an established academic program or complete a service project with an established Jewish organization. Two scholarships of $500 each will be awarded during each scholarship cycle. Applications are due February 15 for spring/summer funding and June 15, for fall/winter funding.
