2011 Kevin Child Scholarship, USA

Each year the Kevin Child Scholarship is awarded to a qualified individual in memory of Kevin Child.  As a child born with hemophilia, Kevin’s lived a life with a challenge from the beginning. He died of AIDS, a few days short of his graduation from college in 1989. Since living with a bleeding disorder provides challenges of its own, an opportunity to obtain a higher education should never be an obstacle for anyone with a bleeding disorder. In honor of Kevin’s legacy, the Child family hopes this scholarship will provide some assistance in acquiring a higher education.
Eligibility: Applicants must be an individual diagnosed with hemophilia A or B and must be a high school senior, with aspirations of attending an institute of higher education (college, university or vocational-technical school) or a college student already pursuing a post secondary education.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 1 June 2011
