Anne Scheiber Scholarship

Benefactor Anne Scheiber believed in the mission of YU: to apply the best of Torah values and Western knowledge to serving the community at large. Before she died in 1995, she established the Anne Scheiber Scholarship Fund for financially and academically deserving Jewish women studying at Stern College for Women and Albert Einstein College of Medicine ''who have indicated their desire to assist in the development of humanity, and alleviate pain and suffering.''

Become Part of a Legacy

Anne Scheiber's extraordinary generosity has paved the way for women to become leaders in their fields. Her vision is shared by YU, where students respond to the demands of a dual curriculum with focus and commitment to human values. Like Anne Scheiber, we can help you make a difference.

Here's how you can be a part of her legacy.


Scholarships up to full tuition will be awarded each year to qualified students with the amount based on the student's need. To be considered for these scholarships, students must:

  • Be enrolled at Stern College for Women and intend to study medicine or the physical and natural sciences and demonstrate financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • Show leadership potential, initiative or creative excellence through extracurricular activities and community involvement
  • Indicate a desire to assist humanity

Graduate scholarships up to full tuition are awarded to graduates of Stern College for Women entering Albert Einstein College of Medicine or its Sue Golding Graduate Division of Medical Sciences who require financial assistance. Undergraduate and graduate scholarship awards are reviewed annually and may be renewed until graduation.
