College Scholarships

college scholarships

Since 2010, The Leon N. Weiner Education Foundation Scholarship program has awarded between $4,500 and $54,400 annually in college scholarships to aspiring students who have demonstrated initiative, talent, skill and need. LNWEF awarded over $95,000 in 2017.

The Scholarships help pay for much-needed books, computers, and tuition, as well as other college-related expenses. In recent years, we’ve seen a significant increase in number and the caliber of applicants. As news of this program continues to grow, we expect this trend to gain even more momentum, as in 2017.
