A good place to start is to investigate available information on the loan. The best shot of success can be attained by initially researching the prerequisites and knowing if you fulfill them. Before you even begin, figure out the reason for involvement of the Jewish Family and Children's Services (JFCS) and their goals for the Selig Fund. Once that is done, make sure there is the possibility to receive the loan. Upon determining that there is a good chance of actually being awarded the Selig Fund, then you should put forth the effort to apply.

A vital part of applying for the loan is properly completing the forms. Applications can sometimes be time consuming and boring, but take the time to make sure that the forms are filled out correctly and without omission. Pay careful attention so that you won't get passed over on a technicality.

After filing, figure out the timeframe regarding when the Selig Fund chooses a winner and actually dispenses the resources in order to know whether or not it is possible to count on the loan to help meet your financial needs and what assistance it will provide, since there might be constraints on what bills you can pay with the Selig Fund. It can be difficult to be able to manage the expenses associated with school, and obtaining the Selig Fund to help with your financial aid can make things much easier. If you don't end up getting the Selig Fund, keep at it, you might find new loans and your persistence may be rewarded.
