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.

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.
