Undergraduate Scholarship Program
Since 1991, the Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patients Network has continued to recognize children and young adults living with sickle cell and/or thalassemia, for their scholastic achievements. Our Annual Scholarship Award Ceremony honors students who demonstrate academic excellence and outstanding determination to succeed scholastically. The Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patients Network support and promote academic achievement, because we believe that education is the foundation for their future.
The Undergraduate College Scholarship program affords individuals entering college or already in college an opportunity to apply annually for the scholarship. Qualifying students receive a monetary award in the amount of $1000.00. These funds are intended to provide assistance with tuition, books, meals, room and board and/or other expenses. Former recipients may re-apply each year. Up to 2013, there were $67,000 of total scholarships that were awarded. Last year in 2014, an additional four scholarships were awarded which sums up to $71,000 in scholarship funding.
