SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

overview

It’s been said that education is the key to success. And, at the Leon N. Weiner Education Foundation, we know that it’s true! To ensure a successful college or university experience, solid preparation in high schools with high standards is crucial. Some of those high schools charge tuition that can place a heavy burden on families.

Now, through the new High School Tuition Scholarship Program, the Leon N. Weiner Education Foundation (LNWEF) will provide some much-needed financial support to bright, high-achieving students striving to take advantage of those opportunities and reach the next level in their education.

This High School Tuition Scholarship Program provides up to $5,000 in yearly tuition assistance for hard-working students who live in Leon N. Weiner owned properties and have been accepted into high schools that require tuition. High 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.
