The Calvin Dawson Scholarship Fund was established to memorialize the founder and first Executive Director of the Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida. Calvin Dawson was a passionate and dedicated pioneer for the rights of those with bleeding disorders who spent his life serving them and their families. Continuing this quest is the goal of the Scholarship Fund, to help those with bleeding disorders who are determined to succeed in life.
Scholarships are available for Florida residents with hemophilia, von Willebrands disease and other related hereditary bleeding disorders. Scholarships are for high school graduates pursuing a post-secondary education at a college, technical or trade school, or through other certification programs, and are awarded based on merit, need, community service, and the aspirations of the applicant as reflected in an essay. The awards will be given directly to the institution that the recipient plans to attend.
Please submit your application, transcripts, and three reference forms by the deadline of April 30 to the Hemophilia Foundation at 1350 Orange Ave, Suite 227, Winter Park, FL 32789. Recipients of the awards will be notified by July 30.
