The Tennessee Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders Foundation recognizes the financial difficulties of families with hemophilia and bleeding disorders, and the hardship of funding higher education. Many years ago, in honor of the leadership provided by Doctors Marion Dugdale and Jan van Eys, School Scholarship Funds were established in their names to be awarded to high school graduates, undergraduates or technical school students. Applicants must receive treatment in Tennessee.
The scholarships are awarded on an annual basis, with the number of recipients and the amount awarded determined by available funds. Payment will be made in two increments, one for the fall semester and one for the spring semester. The Foundation prefers to make payment directly to the school or vendor. Proof of enrollment is required for the first semester鈥檚 payment. Proof of enrollment, transcripts, and Completed Community Service forms must be mailed to the foundation in order to receive the second semester鈥檚 payment. Receipts will be required for direct payments to the recipient.
College-bound high school seniors (graduate or GED), college students, technical school students with a bleeding disorder or the child, spouse or guardian of a person with a bleeding disorder.
Applicants must receive treatment in Tennessee and provide proof of bleeding disorder and HTC. Applicants must also have a GPA of 2.5 or higher to apply.
