Educational Scholarships



The Eastern PA Hemophilia Foundation awards undergraduate college and trade school scholarships to students with hemophilia, vWD and other clotting factor deficiencies. To qualify, you must either live in Pennsylvania (Eastern PA's coverage area) or if you live outside the state, then you must be treated at one of the following six Hemophilia Treatment Centers:

  • Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
  • Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
  • Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
  • St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children
  • Penn State Hershey Medical Center
  • Lehigh Valley Hospital - Muhlenberg


Scholarship recipients receive up to $2,000 a year for a maximum of 4 years, as long as the student remains in good standing with the college and completes a volunteer requirement at an Eastern PA event each year. The Eastern PA Hemophilia Foundation awards up to 15 undergraduate scholarships per year.


Applications must be submitted to our office by August 15th in order to be applied to the upcoming school year. Late applications will not be accepted.
