Scholarship Eligibility: Individuals living with an inherited bleeding disorder, their sibling or their parents who live in the territorial jurisdiction of VHF, which includes the State of Virginia, with the exception of the following: The cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, Manassas, and Vienna and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudon, Prince William and Stafford.
Scholarship applicants must have participated in VHF activities.
Scholarship Award: Scholarships are one-year awards in the amount of $2,000 for a full academic year. While at least two scholarships are available each year, VHF is not obligated to award scholarships in a given year. The scholarships may be used at any accredited nonprofit college, university, or vocational/technical school in the United States and are to be applied toward a student’s educational expenses.
A student who receives an award one year may reapply in later years but winning a scholarship in one year does not necessarily mean that the student will win in a later year. Also, a student who applies in one year and does not receive an award is eligible to apply the following year for the scholarship.
Payment of Scholarship Funds: Scholarship payments are not distributed directly to an individual, but are made via scholarship checks, payable to the schools. VHF staff will work with the award recipient(s) to process the scholarship funds.
