Foundation announces youth business scholarship

Elyse K. Sollender has created the Jeffrey D. Sollender Business and Philanthropic Youth Entrepreneurship Scholarship Program at the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego, in memory of her late husband, Jeff Sollender.

Scholarships will recognize innovative, college-bound students who have created and maintained their own commercial or social enterprises.

“Jeff was a highly accomplished and creative entrepreneur with boundless energy and optimism who was always available to help others in pursuit of their dreams” said Elyse Sollender.

Scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors of all faiths in San Diego who are planning to attend two- or four-year colleges or universities.  Eligible students must be actively involved in running their own small businesses or philanthropic ventures for at least one year. Students must demonstrate financial need and have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Scholarships may be applied to college tuition and books. Awards are made yearly and may be renewed if requirements are met and funds are available.
