Each year, HFA awards scholarships to promising students in the bleeding disorders community. We offer 4 scholarships of $2,000-$4,000 in three categories.

  • Educational Scholarship
  • Parent/Sibling/Child Educational Scholarship
  • Medical/Healthcare Services Educational Scholarship

All recipients are invited to reapply in subsequent years for renewal as long as they are in good academic standing. This renewal will not be automatic, as each year’s applicants will be independently weighed.

Educational Scholarship

Two (2) educational scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $2,000.00 each to students with a bleeding disorder.

  • A person with a bleeding disorder
  • Seeking a post-secondary education from a college, university or trade school

Medical/Healthcare Services Educational Scholarship

One (1) scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $4,000.00 to a student pursuing a degree in the medical/healthcare services field. We have noticed over the years that many of our students in the bleeding disorders community are studying for a career in the medial field. Because we know how costly this can be, we created this scholarship specifically for those students to help further their goals.

  • A person with a bleeding disorder or related to someone with a bleeding disorder
  • Must be pursuing a degree in the medical/healthcare services field
