David Lebenbom Memorial Scholarship Award for Nursing Facilities

David Lebenbom

Established in 2016 in memory of HCAM’s long-time legal counsel, the David Lebenbom Memorial Scholarship provides cash awards to assist employees in meeting education expenses and advancing the long-term care profession. Contracted as special legal counsel for the association in the 1960s, David Lebenbom helped pioneer the laws governing long-term care in Michigan over the next 40 years. His firm, Lebenbom and Rothman P.C., continues to serve as HCAM general counsel today. Scholarship applicants must:

  • Be employed by an HCAM skilled nursing facility member in good standing for a minimum of one year.
  • Be enrolled in an education program related to long-term care at an accredited college or university.
  • Appliable programs include, but are not limited to, nursing, art, music therapy and other related fields. 

Scholarship nominations open in late spring each year, and winners are announced prior to the Annual Convention each fall.
