Scholarships

Crooked Branch Travel Scholarship

Pacific Northwest Bleeding Disorders (PNWBD) is pleased to offer an Educational Grant to travel to NHF’s annual Bleeding Disorders Conference or HFA’s annual Symposium. Both conferences enable the bleeding disorder community to come together and exchange information on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of diagnosis to the most recent and relevant developments in treatment and technology. These two events are the premier opportunities for networking and support for individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders from around the world.

PNWBD wishes to support an individual with a bleeding disorder and a traveling companion (either a significant other or child) to attend either of the national level conferences. Grant recipients will be determined through an equitable selection process conducted by a volunteer review team. Preference will be given to those who have not previously attended the national conferences. Each grant will cover up to two family members. Applicants must be at least 18 years old.

Post-Secondary Education Scholarship

Pacific Northwest Bleeding Disorders (PNWBD) is pleased to offer a $1,000 scholarship for post-secondary education for individuals with a bleeding disorder, and their immediate family members, residing in the state of Oregon and SW Washington. Scholarship awards can be used for tuition, room and board, and related expenses at the post-secondary institution (college, university, trade/vocational school). Traditionally, the scholarship application deadline is July 31 (no late applications will be accepted) and the scholarship awards are announced at the PNWBD Annual Meeting in mid-September.
