Weinman's donate $1.56M to help tackle Hawai‘i’s doctor shortage

The Weinmans opened their home to seven Weinman Fellows and their families so they could meet each other and welcome Dr. Jerris Hedges as JABSOM dean on April 18, 2008.

Inspired by the success of a $1.6 million donation that established the Barry and Virginia Weinman Fellowship to fund 10 medical students’ educations, renowned philanthropists Barry and Virginia Weinman recently donated $1.56 million to fund 10 full-tuition scholarships at the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

Gifts in 2020 totaled $84.7M in support for UH students, programs and research

Donors have made a phenomenal difference in the lives of our students this year, funding COVID-19 related urgent needs, programs supporting high school students’ transition to college, and students from all backgrounds graduating with the degrees and certificates essential for our economic recovery.”
