USY Summer Scholarship Application

USY Summer Scholarship Application

We are thrilled that we will be once again partnering with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, who will be conducting the financial need analysis for our programs. Families applying for scholarship will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by March 18, 2022.

Applicants can apply online through FACTS.

If you do not have an account, please create one. Be sure to select the 22-23 school year.

If you have used the FACTS system this year, then your previously submitted information can be analyzed for our scholarship requirements – you will just need to add USCJ (USY) as a school in your account so that we can receive your information. If you need further information about accessing that information, please be in direct contact with FACTS.

In addition to completing the FACTS application, please check with your Branch Director for other funds that are available. Please note, that there may be additional requirements from your region such as an interview or an essay that are not required through FACTS, so please be in touch with your branch staff.

DO NOT FORGET to contact your synagogue rabbi, educational director, Jewish Federation and other Jewish institutions in your area as sources for funds.

Once an online FACTS application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:

  • Copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
  • Copies of your 2021 W-2 forms for both you and your spouse.
  • Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.

All supporting documentation can be uploaded in PDF format online. Documentation can also be faxed to 866-315-9264 or mailed to the address below. Please be sure to include the applicant ID on all faxed or mailed correspondence.
