Leaders Save Lives Scholarship Program

The American Red Cross is giving away scholarships!

Would you like to demonstrate your leadership ability? Want to work with the largest humanitarian network in the world? And could you use college scholarship money? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the American Red Cross has a great opportunity for you.

Leaders Save Lives is a scholarship opportunity for high school and college students. You will gain a meaningful leadership and community service experience. In addition, you may become eligible to win a scholarship and earn a gift card! High school students can also earn an automatic tier upgrade for the High School Leadership Program.

 

What do students have to do?

You will be working hand-in-hand with an American Red Cross account manager to coordinate a lifesaving blood drive. You will help save lives by recruiting your friends and family to schedule appointments to give blood. Your blood drive must be scheduled during the summer or winter when school is out of session during one of the two program timeframes:

  • Summer program: June 1 - Aug. 31, 2016
  • Winter program: Dec. 15, 2016 - Jan. 15, 2017

Just fill out this registration form and you will be contacted by an American Red Cross account manager who will discuss your potential as a Leaders Save Lives blood drive coordinator.

 

Who is eligible to participate as a blood drive coordinator?

All high school and college students are eligible.
