Step Up For Students

Step Up For Students is a scholarship awarded to Florida public school students who are economically disadvantaged and would like to attend a private school. Families who are eligible for Step Up For Students scholarships and do not currently receive Step Up funds must apply for the scholarship in a timely manner, as funds are awarded on a first-come first-served basis. Families who already receive Step Up funds for their children should renew their application as soon as possible.

Shay Scholarship

Several years ago, Katz Yeshiva High School of South Florida received a gift from Susan and Scott Shay to create the Shay Scholars Endowment Fund. It awards a number of students who attended public or private middle schools a four-year merit-based partial scholarship to attend KYHS. Students are selected on the basis of their interest in academic and religious growth and their ability to handle the challenging dual-curriculum program.


How to apply (only available to students currently attending public or private non-Jewish day schools):

1) Students must write a 250-word essay on why they would like to attend a Jewish day school.

2) Essays must be e-mailed to Executive Director Shimmie Kaminetsky
