The evidence is in. A high quality education from an early age is a benefit throughout school and not to mention life. Sometimes the best school for a child may be one that charges tuition. And, sometimes the cost of it can be out of reach for families. 

Now, through the Elementary School Tuition Scholarship Program, the Leon N. Weiner Education Foundation (LNWEF) will provide up to $5,000 in tuition for a child from a Leon N. Weiner owned property to attend elementary school, grades K - 6th. Elementary School Tuition Scholarships are available for tuition only. All scholarship funds will be disbursed directly to the school on the awardee’s behalf. Scholarships are not automatically renewable, however, applicants may reapply in subsequent years.
