Who is eligible for the WPBDF Scholarship?
Any person or immediate family member of a person with hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease, or other inherited bleeding disorder is eligible to apply for this scholarship. The person with the bleeding disorder must either be a member of the Foundation, living in one of the 26 counties served by the Foundation, or be a patient of the Hemophilia Center of Western PA. The candidate must provide proof of enrollment in an accredited school or vocational/technical center and must submit a completed application within the established deadline.
One full award of $2,500 per degree program or course of study will be granted. Partial awards may be granted.

We wish you the very best of luck as you pursue your education.
