The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Kevin Child Scholarship. Each year this scholarship is awarded to a qualified individual in memory of Kevin Child. As a child born with hemophilia, Kevin’s life was challenging from the beginning. He died of AIDS a few days before his college graduation in 1989. Because living with a bleeding disorder provides enough challenges of its own, the opportunity to obtain a higher education should never be an obstacle. In honor of Kevin’s legacy, the Child family hopes this scholarship will provide some assistance to a qualified individual pursuing higher education.
Applicants must be diagnosed with hemophilia A or B. They must be a high school senior, with aspirations of attending an institution of higher education (college, university or vocational-technical school) or a college student already pursuing a post-secondary education.
Download an application. The application must be sent to the National Hemophilia Foundation in New York City, postmarked no later than Friday, June 1, 2012.
NHF is also happy to announce that the 2012 Academic Scholarships page is now available on the NHF Web site. Please note that any queries, other than those for Kevin Child, should be directed to the program’s sponsor.
