2021 Carrie Jacobi Scholarship Fund of the
Oklahoma City Jewish Foundation
The Carrie Jacobi Scholarship Fund is part of the Oklahoma City Jewish Foundation. This fund originated from a generous bequest by Ruth Jacobi Mack to the Council of Jewish Woman of Oklahoma City in 1975. In 1989, the Council of Jewish Women of Oklahoma City requested that the Carrie Jacobi Scholarship Fund be administered by the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City.
The Carrie Jacobi Scholarship Fund was made a restricted account in the Oklahoma City Jewish Foundation (the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City’s foundation).
The Carrie Jacobi Scholarship Fund Committee determines grant parameters for the Scholarship Fund.
Jewish high school seniors and college students are invited to apply annually for consideration of a higher education grant (technical school, college or university). Grants range from $360 - $3,600.
