The Fund for Professional Development

 Applications are now closed for 2024 scholarship requests.

In honor of the 40th work anniversary of Marci Mayer Eisen in 2021 and her career long passion for professional development and training, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis established an endowment fund for professional development scholarships. Staff who currently work for a Jewish organization in St. Louis can apply for a scholarship to attend a conference, seminar, leadership program, or university class.

Note: A maximum of $1,500 will be awarded each year. Applications will be reviewed by a committee representing the diversity of our professional community.
