NHF Web Site Provides College Scholarship Information


If you’re looking for a way to finance your education, college scholarships can help. The National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF) Web site has a list of nearly two dozen scholarships for students interested in pursuing post-high school education, whether at a college, university or vocational/technical school. While most of the scholarships are for students with bleeding disorders, some are also for siblings, parents and spouses. A few are for men or women only. Most of the scholarships have deadlines from March through June 2007.


This year NHF’s Project Red Flag is offering two college scholarships to female students pursuing post-high school studies. Candidates for the Project Red Flag Academic Scholarships for Women with Bleeding Disorders must have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder, such as von Willebrand disease, or be a hemophilia carrier. Ideal candidates are those who have had some community service experience, particularly within the bleeding disorders community. The scholarship deadline is Friday, May 18, 2007.


The scholarships were inspired by two young women who embody the spirit of giving back to the community—Lindsey Hanson and Josephine Droney. Click here to download an application.
