Apply Now for College Scholarships

Every year, the National Hemophilia foundation posts a list of college scholarships for students living with bleeding disorders and their family members. Note: two important scholarships have deadlines in late May and early June:


Victory for Women Academic Scholarships for Women with Bleeding Disorders


The Victory for Women (V4W) program is pleased to offer two $2,500 academic scholarships for women pursuing a degree program in post-secondary education, at a college, university or accredited vocational school. Candidates must be US residents and have a bleeding disorder diagnosis from a hematologist, such as von Willebrand disease, hemophilia, or a factor deficiency, or be a carrier.


For more information, please contact Erin Kaiser, NHF program assistant for Victory for Women. The deadline for applications is: Friday, May 25, 2012.


The V4W scholarships were inspired by the generosity of two extraordinary young women in the bleeding disorders community: Josephine Droney and Lindsey Hanson.


Kevin Child Scholarship


Each year the Kevin Child 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 a 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.


The application must be sent to the National Hemophilia Foundation in New York City, postmarked no later than Friday, June 1, 2012.
