The Howard Steven Feffer Memorial Scholarship is a lasting legacy given in loving memory of Howard Steven Feffer, who sadly passed away at the young age of 19 from a brain tumor in 1982. The $2,000 scholarship is funded by Howard’s sister Judith Feffer and it is administered by Lappin Foundation. Judith Feffer will make the final decision about the scholarship recipient.

The scholarship is need-based and will be awarded annually to a Jewish student that lives in Lappin Foundation’s service area* or is a member of a temple in Lappin Foundation’s service area* and who is planning to attend a college or university in the application year. The money will be sent directly to the institution of higher learning that the scholarship recipient plans to attend. Recipients may request the continuation of the scholarship in years to follow if they maintain a 2.8 average.

Jewish high school seniors, who live in Lappin Foundation’s service area* or are a member of a temple in Lappin Foundation’s service area*, and are students in good standing, are invited to apply.

The application packet consists of the online application and a character reference letter, both of which are due by May 17, 2021. The reference letter should be written by someone who can attest to the applicant’s character. The letter should not be written by family members or friends. The letter should be emailed to dcoltin@lappinfoundation.org. The scholarship recipient will be notified by May 28, 2021.

The scholarship recipient must submit their final high school transcript and a copy of the college/university tuition bill prior to the scholarship funds being sent directly to the institution of higher learning.
