Who Can Apply:
- The high cost of medical school can make the field inaccessible to students with financial need.
- For example, the patriarch of our family—Emanuel “Manny” Weiner—graduated from college in a pre-med program, but due to financial and other factors, was unable to attend medical school. This was one of the great regrets of his life.
- In memory of Manny and his wife, Sylvia Weiner, this scholarship seeks to support undergraduates in a pre-med track or current medical students.
- Any student in a pre-med or medical school program from who has financial need and wants to become an M.D. may apply for this scholarship.
Submission: To apply, tell us why you want to become a medical doctor, describe any obstacles that have made this more difficult (i.e. financial circumstances), and explain how you hope having experienced those difficulties will contribute to your practice.
