Education Loans

HFL_Maya_Dec2014-3754The William Davidson Jewish College Loan Program is dedicated to helping Michigan’s Jewish students access higher education to achieve career success. The William Davidson Foundation, together with Hebrew Free Loan (HFL), National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), the United Jewish Foundation (UJF) and dozens of other charitable groups and donors, fund these loans to address the rising costs of higher education.

The William Davidson Jewish College Loan Program provides need-based, interest-free loans to undergraduate and graduate students. These loans are the “last dollars” for students, covering the deficit that exists between resources – savings, scholarships, financial aid, and income – and the total cost of college – tuition, fees, room and board, and certain living expenses.

Information about the William Davidson Jewish College Loan Program is available at Applications can be submitted online from April 1 – May 15 and July 1-31. If you have questions, please e-mail us at, or call Hebrew Free Loan at 248-723-8184.
