Gail Weinstein

Through the generosity of the Weinstein and Johnston families, with the assistance of the Central New York Community Foundation, scholarships have been established to honor the memory of former Upstate paramedic instructor, Gail Weinstein.

Gail’s love of emergency medical services and enthusiasm for provider education facilitated the training of countless providers in the Central New York EMS region and beyond. As a caring, compassionate, and selfless woman, Gail fostered the idea of learning in all who knew her. Her thirst for knowledge and tireless determination provided the foundation for quality care to all patients she reached, both directly and through the extension of her students. Gail’s memory is celebrated by every EMS professional who demonstrates her passion by making a difference.

The Central New York Community Foundation will award four $1,250.00 scholarships for students to complete paramedic education. Eligible applicants will:

  • Complete an application and be accepted to the SUNY Upstate Paramedic Program
  • Submit two letters of recommendation
  • Submit an essay, describing themselves, the desire to become a paramedic, and how the qualities of Gail Weinstein are demonstrated in their practice of emergency medical services and life
