Would you like to attend The National Hemophilia Foundation’s 67th Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX this year?  Here is your chance! The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to offer Connections for Learning Grants for those who want to attend its 67th Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX, August 13-15, 2015.

NHF’s Annual Meeting enables the bleeding disorders community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of hemophilia and von Willebrand disease to the latest research findings and new drug breakthroughs. The three-day conference provides the premier opportunity for networking and support for individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders.

NHF has committed to providing $100,000 annually to a number of families who want to attend its Annual Meeting. There, families can take advantage of the wealth of information and educational opportunities, and get to know other families coping with a bleeding disorder.


Who’s Eligible: To provide a more inclusive Annual Meeting, NHF offers a limited number of Connections for Learning Grants to individuals and/or families with bleeding disorders who wish to attend the Annual Meeting for the first time, and returning families who have not attended NHF’s Annual Meeting for the past three years. NHF would especially like to provide assistance to those unable to attend due to personal obstacles or other barriers. Awards will be based on these factors, and on need.

Restrictions: Only residents of the US and its Territories are eligible to apply for the grant. If you are awarded a Connections for Learning Grant, you must reside in the US or its Territories at the time of travel. NHF staff and their relatives are not eligible to apply.

What the Connections for Learning Grants Cover

The grant may be used to cover Airfare or Mileage and Hotel.  Applicants may apply for grants in one or more of these categories, for a maximum of three nights and four days.

How to Apply

Please apply online. You will need to write an essay before you fill out the application. You should save your essay in a Word document. The forms are in English and in Spanish. Your grant must be completed online by 11:59PM Eastern Time on Friday, May 1, 2015.
