Thank you for your interest in the Jacob N. Shanberge, M.D. Memorial Scholarship. As a result of the generosity of Dr. Shanberge鈥檚 family and other donors, this scholarship has been established to assist students who, like Dr. Shanberge, thirst for scientific knowledge. It will be awarded to only one student annually. Applicants wishing to be considered for this scholarship and Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation鈥檚 Education Scholarship, may complete this one application and check the box on the following page to indicate your interest in both scholarships. Repeat applications are welcomed, but receiving an award one-year will not guarantee receipt the following year. All awards will be presented on behalf of the recipient directly to the educational institution. The committee鈥檚 evaluation of each applicant will be based on achieving the long-term goals of the Education Scholarship Program:
飩 Improved patient and family access to insurance,
飩 Decreased dependency on public sources of support.
飩 Increased commitment to the bleeding disorders community.

Committee members must also evaluate the candidates using a number of other criteria including personal circumstances and financial need. The review committee may request an interview with the applicant to gain a better understanding of their goals and scholarship need. Priority will be granted to individuals with bleeding disorders, then parents of children with bleeding disorders and spouses of individuals with bleeding disorders. If sufficient funds are available consideration will be given to siblings and other family members of an individual
with a bleeding disorder.
In order to be considered for an award, all materials must be received in the GLHF office by March 1, 2020.
Faxed applications will not be accepted. Incomplete applications will not be evaluated.


Individuals living with a bleeding disorder in Wisconsin or receiving treatment at a Wisconsin Hemophilia Treatment Center.
Applicants must be pursuing a degree in science, medicine or a related field.
Qualified applicants will be considered for this scholarship as well as our general Education Scholarship, if requested.
