The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF Nevada) Academic Scholarship Program was started through the generous contributions of a local family and medical provider. The scholarships are available to anyone living in Nevada with an inherited bleeding disorder. The applicant must be in the process of seeking a post-secondary education, which can include a college or university, or a trade school.
NHF Nevada provides scholarships annually in the amounts of $250 - $1,000. Students may reapply each year as long as they continue to meet the eligibility criteria. NHF Nevada will take a number of factors into consideration when determining the award winners including academic merit, leadership qualities, 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 Nevada staff will work with the award recipient(s) to process the scholarship funds.
The applications can be submitted online and must be complete by April 1, 2017-no exceptions. 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 after May 1, 2017. In an effort to ensure confidentiality, applications will be seen by the NHF Nevada staff and scholarship committee only.
