Who is eligible to apply for the Colburn-Keenan Foundation’s Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship?
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 a United States citizen or legally living permanently in the United States.
- 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 performed community service and/or volunteered time and energy to any organization within their community not associated with their school. The community service/volunteer time an applicant notes in this application should be unpaid and not required for school credit. If a student has ONLY performed community service or volunteered with a school class or club, then they ARE NOT eligible to apply.
- Applicants must be entering or attending an accredited two-year or four-year undergraduate institution in the United States to obtain their first undergraduate degree. A student who has already obtained a two-year degree, is eligible to apply as long as they are entering or attending an accredited four-year undergraduate institution for their first Bachelor’s Degree. Students who are pursuing or resuming an undergraduate degree later in adulthood may apply even if there was a gap in their academic career. High school seniors or undergraduate college freshmen, sophomores or juniors may apply.
- Past recipients of the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship may reapply throughout their undergraduate career, until they received four (4) awards from the program. Once a student has received four awards, they are no longer eligible to apply even if they are still in school to obtain their first undergraduate degree.
