Learn more about Gunther & Lee Weigel!

The Gunther & Lee Weigel Medical School Scholarships are scholarships offered to Elks scholars entering their first year of medical school. The scholarship was established through the generosity of the late Lee Weigel, widow of Gunther Weigel. The number of scholarships offered and amounts vary from year to year.

Lee lost her husband of 51 years in November 2009. Gunther was a longtime member of Miami, Fla., Elks Lodge No. 948. He was passionate about the Foundation’s scholarship programs. Lee established these scholarships to help Elks scholars pursue a career in medicine.

If you are an Elks scholar planning to attend an accredited U.S. medical school to pursue a medical degree or Osteopathic Medicine degree, consider applying before you begin your first year of medical school.

For the 2021 contest, ten (10) $22,000 scholarships will be offered exclusively to Elks scholars** entering their first year of medical school in fall 2021. The application will be available beginning January, 2021 and close May, 2021.

The application for the 2021 contest will be available beginning in January, 2021. Request from the ENF Scholarship office by emailing scholarship@elks.org or calling 773/755-4732.

**Please note, this award is only open to current and former scholarship recipients of the Elks National Foundation. Winners of local Lodge scholarships and State Elks Association scholarships are not eligible for this program. This program is not open to the general public.**
