About the Scholarship

Each year, the Kevin Child Scholarship is awarded to an exceptional student in memory of Kevin Child. As a child born with hemophilia in the late 1960s, Kevin had lived a life filled with challenges from the start. When he died of AIDS-related complications in 1989, he was just a few days short of his college graduation.  In honor of Kevin’s legacy, the Child family hopes this scholarship program will provide some assistance for students striving to acquire a higher education. Kevin Child Scholarship applications are only being accepted by email.
