LIFESCHOLARS EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS
LifeShare Blood Centers collects blood donations at 250 high schools throughout the LifeShare service territory. Over 35% of the community’s blood supply is provided by these students. The Program recognizes student blood donors for their commitment to the volunteer blood donor program. Each qualifying school receives either a $500 or $750 scholarship that the school awards to a student who has donated blood a minimum of six times or has served at least two years on the school’s Blood Donor Program Committee, is in good standing with a minimum cumulative 2.7 GPA, and will enroll in a technical college, community college, or college/university no later than the fall semester after high school graduation.
LifeScholars benefits the entire community by encouraging blood donations and providing financial support for more than 100 students who are enrolled in college or technical school. In 2011 almost $60,000 was awarded through the LifeScholars program.
Your contribution to this program supports the community blood supply and the educational aspirations of students who understand and support the idea of community responsibility through blood donation. Your financial gifts directly underwrite the cost of scholarship dollars for students.
