Each of our four Fellows, a select group of graduating high school seniors residing in the Los Angeles area, receives a $10,000 annual college scholarship. The Brawerman Fellows are chosen based on academic strength, financial need, and a commitment to leadership, community service, and Jewish engagement. During their college years, the Fellows build leadership skills and deepen their connection to Jewish life.
The Geri & Richard Brawerman Leadership Institute was established through a multi-million dollar gift from community leader Geri Brawerman on behalf of herself and her late husband Richard, making it possible for The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles to develop and sustain a talent pool of engaged Jewish young leaders in perpetuity. *check back later for updates on scholarship availability.
