Tirtza Spiegel received assistance from the Anne Scheiber Scholarship Fund to attend Stern College for Women and Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
“My science education was a dream come true because Stern invests in its students, supports their interests, and surrounds you with a myriad of educated women, many of whom are Orthodox Jews.
“In a university where the majority of students benefit from financial assistance, it is important for the community to support students and their promising futures with adequate scholarships, and for alumni to pay it forward.”
Dr. Mehran Manouel fled from Iran to the U.S. after the Shah’s exile in 1979. He attended YU and Albert Einstein College of Medicine thanks to full scholarships.
“During the many appeals I fought in court trying to gain permanent political asylum, when I had no community to call my own—YU was there for me, offering me support, scholarship assistance, and a world-class education.
“YU is an institution that provides you with not only an education, but with a whole future.”
