The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) has applications available for the 2006 Project Red Flag Academic Scholarship for Women with Bleeding Disorders. The scholarship is designed to benefit women with bleeding disorders in their academic studies. Two awards of $2,500.00 each will be granted to the winners, who may use the funds to pay expenses related to undergraduate or graduate studies at a college, university or an accredited vocational school.
Launched in 2000 in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and with support from ZLB Behring, Project Red Flag: Real Talk About Women’s Bleeding Disorders (PRF) is NHF’s education and outreach program raising the awareness for women and their healthcare providers about the symptoms of bleeding disorders. PRF also seeks to encourage proper diagnosis and treatment.
All completed PRF scholarship applications must be postmarked by May 15, 2006. For more information and to download an application, go to www.projectredflag.org/scholarship.htm.
