The Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship Program is an annual competitive educational scholarship sponsored by the Foundation.
The number of scholarship awards may vary. Up to 20 scholarships in the amount of $4,000 may be awarded annually and are not renewable. The Colburn-Keenan Foundation reserves the right to award less or more than twenty scholarships based on the applicant pool and available funding. Students may reapply each year as long as they continue to meet the eligibility criteria. The scholarships will be applied to costs associated with obtaining an undergraduate degree at accredited, nonprofit two or four-year undergraduate institutions in the United States.
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 diagnosed with an inherited bleeding disorder. Students who do not have an inherited bleeding disorder but whose parent(s) or sibling(s) have an inherited bleeding disorder are not eligible to apply, even though they are affected by an inherited bleeding disorder.
Applicants must have volunteered time and energy to directly benefit the bleeding disorders community. While general volunteerism is undeniably valuable and should be noted, applicants must document volunteer activities specifically within the bleeding disorders community in order to be considered for this scholarship. Regardless of any legitimate barriers to one’s ability to accomplish volunteerism within the bleeding disorders community, applicants should not apply if they cannot fulfill this requirement.
Applicants must be entering or attending an accredited 2 year or 4 year undergraduate institution in the United States. High school seniors, undergraduate freshmen, undergraduate sophomores, and undergraduate juniors may apply. Students who are pursuing or resuming an undergraduate degree later in adulthood may apply even if there was a gap in their academic career.
Applicants who are past recipients of the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship may reapply throughout their undergraduate career.
