By participating in the Sickle Cell Fighter High School Scholarship Program, you can help build a stronger community now, and for many years to come.
The top ten high schools in the country that host at least one blood drive and collect the most productive units (minimum of 50) from donors who self-identify as African American this school year, will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship.
Representatives from your school will determine the scholarship recipient based on Red Cross recommended criteria:
- Student must be enrolled as a high school student at an accredited state educational facility.
- Student must utilize the scholarship to continue their education at an accredited two-year, four-year or professional trade school.
- Student is actively engaged in supporting the Red Cross sickle cell initiative by helping inspire members of the Black community to give blood.
