Harold and John Steinberg Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund

The Harold and John Steinberg Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund  was established to recognize exceptional caregiving and patient/family support in oncology nursing at SCCA, Seattle Children’s Hospital and University of Washington Medical Center. This scholarship is supported by generous contributions from Howard Steinberg and his family and friends in memory of his father, Harold, and his brother, John. Before his death in 1994, John Steinberg received two bone marrow transplants. Harold had multiple myeloma and passed away in 1981. The scholarship may be used for a nursing-focused oncology conference or for tuition reimbursement toward a nursing degree.

Bone marrow The soft, spongy material in the center of your bones that produces all your blood cells, such as white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
