The children of Delwin C. Jacobus (Economics, 1965) established this fund in his honor and memory. He was president of Jacobus Company and was awarded an honorary doctorate by UWM in 1972.
The multi-purpose Delwin C. Jacobus Venture Fund, established in 1985, encourages entrepreneurial activity. The fund helps to finance student business venture projects, and has a designated internship opportunity—selected students are awarded the value of one semester’s tuition upon successful completion of a specific paid internship.
“We wish to enhance the educational experience of UWM students at the Lubar School of Business by encouraging their ideas and giving them real-world work experience.”
