Local Scholarships

The application period for 2017 has closed. Thank you for your submissions!

The Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF Colorado) Academic Scholarship Program started through the generous contributions of local family contributions.  

NHF Colorado awards two scholarship annually, The Colorado Family Fund Scholarship and The Jana Marie Lambert Memorial Scholarship.

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.

The Colorado Family Fund awards $2,500 and The Jana Marie Lambert Memorial awards $1,000. You will be considered for both awards per one application.

An applicant is eligible to receive the grant multiple times, however, preference will be given to those who haven’t received funding prior. NHF Colorado will take a number of factors into consideration when determining the award recipients:

  • Chapter volunteer involvement;
  • General volunteer involvement;
  • Vision and future goals;
  • Essay narrative;
  • Academic merit.

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 Academic Scholarship Application must be received at the NHF Colorado office by May 1, 2017–no exceptions. NHF Colorado will accept applications postmarked on the due date. Illegible 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 June 1, 2017. In an effort to ensure confidentiality, applications will be seen by the NHF Colorado staff only.
