The George and Linda Price Educational Scholarship Program

The George and Linda Price Educational Scholarship Program awards funds for post-secondary education to eligible HACA members. The board recently voted to increase the amount of the scholarship award. Now two recipients will receive a $3,000 scholarship each for use within one academic year. This program is open to members with a bleeding disorder, as well as their siblings or parents. The scholarships may be used at any accredited non-profit college, university, vocational or technical school in the United States.

Congratulations to Heather Alba and Dajon Matthews, this year’s recipient of the scholarship. Heather is attending Northern Virginia Community College, and Dajon is attending Prince George’s Community College.

The application process for the 2018 scholarship is now open for HFA’s Symposium in Cleveland, Ohio, April 26-28. Scholarships may be used to help defray the costs of airfare/mileage, hotel accommodations, and annual meeting registration fees.  The maximum award will not exceed $1,000 for an individual or $2,000 for a family of two or more persons.  The applicant will be responsible for all meals and other incidentals.
