Established in 2004, the BioRx Educational Scholarships are intended for anyone in the country living with a bleeding disorder, including caregivers of children affected with bleeding disorders, a person who has been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder, or a sibling of a person diagnosed with a bleeding disorder. Each year, four individuals are selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship toward their education. While the scholarships are available to anyone with a bleeding disorder, preference is given to applicants who are working toward completing coursework in a healthcare related field at accredited colleges or certified training programs.
Catherine will attend Christopher Newport University, majoring in Pre-Pharmacy, and Kelsey is pursuing a Nursing degree at Wright State University. Ethan is a student at Northern Arizona University, majoring in Exercise Science or Geology, and Marwa is studying Nursing at Trocare College.
