OneBlood provides scholarship dollars to the following program:
Scholarship Assistance Program
The Scholarship Assistance Program recognizes excellence in blood drive participation and encourages students to donate blood throughout their lives. A donation of $20 per unit of blood collected at participating schools is made and the Scholarship Assistance Program then awards scholarships to graduating students from those participating schools. Scholarships received from the Scholarship Assistance Program can be used at almost any type of post-secondary institute.
- Must have demonstrated outstanding personal leadership among his/her peers by participating in the coordination of a blood drive program at respective high schools.
- Will be graduating from high school during this calendar year.
- An unweighted GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (including transcripts).
- A letter of recommendation from the blood drive faculty contact, teacher or principal.
- Official scholarship applications must be submitted/received by the deadline to be considered. Incomplete applications will not be processed. It is the responsibility of the applicant to submit complete applications to the Scholarship Assistance Program by the required deadline.
- The Scholarship Assistance Program establishes a cutoff date for scholarship eligible blood drives. All blood collected after such date will generate scholarship dollars for the following school year.
- A Selection Committee will review all submitted applications and select the awardees. Applying for a scholarship does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.
- Each scholarship awardee is responsible for maintaining their award letter until it is used. Duplicate copies are not sent.
