Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship

The Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship Program is an annual competitive educational scholarship sponsored by the Foundation. This scholarship was created in honor of Beth Carew. Beth was an energetic, bright, loving, and caring woman.

The number of scholarship awards vary and the scholarship amounts range from $500 鈥 $6,000 annually and are not renewable. The Colburn-Keenan Foundation reserves the right to change the number of awards and the amounts based on the applicant pool and available funding.

Eligibility:

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 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.

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鈥檚 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.
