NOW ACCEPTING 2022 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS!

The 2022 Scholarship Application window will be March 1, 2022 through May 1, 2022. 

 

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 May 1, 2022–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. Selected recipients will be contacted after June 30, 2022.

Who is eligible to apply for the Colburn-Keenan Foundation’s Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship?

 

Any undergraduate student with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, or a related inherited bleeding disorder is eligible to apply for the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship as long as all of the below criteria are also met:

 

Applicants must be a United States citizen or legally living permanently in the United States.

Applicants must be diagnosed with an inherited bleeding disorder. Students who do not have an inherited bleeding disorder but whose parent(s) or sibling(s) have an inherited bleeding disorder are not eligible to apply, even though they are affected by an inherited bleeding disorder.

Applicants must have performed community service and/or volunteered time and energy to any organization within their community not associated with their school. The community service/volunteer time an applicant notes in this application should be unpaid and not required for school credit. If a student has ONLY performed community service or volunteered with a school class or club, then they ARE NOT eligible to apply.

Applicants must be entering or attending an accredited two-year or four-year undergraduate institution in the United States to obtain their first undergraduate degree. A student who has already obtained a two-year degree, is eligible to apply as long as they are entering or attending an accredited four-year undergraduate institution for their first Bachelor’s Degree. Students who are pursuing or resuming an undergraduate degree later in adulthood may apply even if there was a gap in their academic career. High school seniors or undergraduate college freshmen, sophomores or juniors may apply.

Past recipients of the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship may reapply throughout their undergraduate career, until they received four (4) awards from the program. Once a student has received four awards, they are no longer eligible to apply even if they are still in school to obtain their first undergraduate degree.
