About the Scholarship

Bill Drohan, a well-known microbiologist and educator, lost his battle with metastatic lung cancer at the age of 60. He was a pioneer in using molecular biology to produce recombinant proteins and a visionary scientist who dedicated his life to improving the safety of blood and blood products. He also served as a member of the board of the Coalition for Hemophilia B and was instrumental in its creation.

The Coalition for Hemophilia B established the Drohan fund to offer scholarships to children with hemophilia B and their siblings. Applicants must have applied to, or been accepted at, an accredited college or university and have need for financial assistance. Each year we award four (4) or more scholarships to students with hemophilia B or their siblings. In the past 12 years, $220,000 was given.
