The Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF Colorado) Academic Scholarship Program started through the generous contributions of local family contributions. The scholarships are available to anyone with a bleeding disorder, immediate family members of those with a bleeding disorder, and immediate family members of those who have died due to complications of a bleeding disorder living in Colorado. The applicant must be in the process of seeking a post-secondary education, which can include a college or university, or a trade school.
This year, NHF Colorado will provide one scholarship annually in the amount of $2,500. An applicant is eligible to receive the grant one time only, but may apply multiple times. NHF Colorado will take a number of factors into consideration when determining the award winners including academic merit, employment status, narrative and reference letters, financial need, and impact of bleeding disorder on educational activities. Awarded scholarship monies cannot be distributed directly to an individual; if awarded, the NHF Colorado staff will work with the award recipient(s) to process the scholarship funds.
The NHF Colorado application must be received at the NHF Colorado office by April 1, 2013–no exceptions. NHF Colorado will accept applications postmarked on the due date. Faxed, illegible and e-mailed applications are not acceptable. Applications completed by anyone other than the applicant will not be accepted. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The recipients of the scholarship monies will be notified no later than May 1, 2013. In an effort to ensure confidentiality, applications will be seen by the NHF Colorado staff only.
