The Mezaros/Weiner Family has been fighting student debt as a donor with Bold.org since September 2021. Through their scholarship fund, they honor the patriarch of their family, Emanuel "Manny" Weiner. Manny graduated from college in a pre-med program, but due to financial factors and other circumstances, he was unable to attend medical school. The high cost of medical school can make the field inaccessible to students with financial need. Therefore, in memory of Manny, this scholarship fund will give opportunities to students with financial need so they can pursue medical school.
This scholarship fund is in in memory of Manny and his wife, Sylvia, and will support undergraduates on a pre-med track or current medical students from New Jersey or New York.
