Over the past four years, the Academy has helped more than 30 students in South Africa achieve their MA’s in Jewish Education, and to do this we set up some really exciting funding options for educators only. 1. The FutureFund - a fund built to provide scholarships to educators intending on teaching in SA. 2. The Educators 0% interest Study Loan - a study loan programme built for you - to lend educators funds at 0% interest to help pay for your education in partnership with the JFLA (Jewish Free Loan Association). 3.
