Local Scholarships

The 2021 NHF Colorado Academic Scholarships Are Now Available!

NEW APPLICATION!

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 is proud to award two scholarships annually to those in the bleeding disorder community to help further secondary education. The Colorado Chapter Scholarship is provided by the Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation and is funded through chapter fundraisers. The Jana Marie Lambert Memorial Scholarship is presented by the Lambert family in honor of the late Jana Marie.

This year the Scholarship Committee is excited to announce there is a new application! The new condensed PDF application will provide a sense of ease while completing and submitting the form. This will help you as the applicant to make the most of your time as you are preparing for the next steps. By completing one application you will be considered for both scholarships.

The two scholarships are available to anyone who meets the following requirements: has 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 $1,000 and The Jana Marie Lambert Memorial awards $1,500. You will be considered for both awards per one application.

Learn more about community member, Jana Lambert.

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 involvement;
  • Volunteer involvement;
  • Vision and future goals;
  • Essay narrative;
  • Academic merit.

The Academic Scholarship Application must be received at the NHF Colorado office by June 18th–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.

For additional questions, please contact NHF Colorado today.
