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 Amy Alba and Ishaan Babbar, this year’s recipient of the scholarship. Amy is attending Northern Virginia Community College, and Ishaan is attending George Mason University.

The 2019-2020 scholarship program will open in February 2019. 

The Sandi Qualley National Meeting Attendance Scholarship

The Sandi Qualley National Scholarship Fund is a scholarship awarded to a HACA member to attend either the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) Annual Meeting or the Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA) Symposium. It is named in honor of Sandi Qualley, who served as the Executive Director of HACA from 1991 to 2011.

Mark Antell was the recipient of the scholarship for the HFA Annual Meeting in April 2018. 

A special thanks to Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Haymarket, VA, which recently made a donation in honor of Sandi to the scholarship program.
