College Scholarships Dealing With Sickle Cell Anemia


College Scholarships.org is a site created to serve people who are interested in college funding. What makes us unique is that we list a broad array of funding opportunities without asking for information from you. There are no long forms to fill out in order to access our resources. We provide different scholarships to people who are pursuing education and are afflicted with sickle cell disease or some other blood diseases. 

Kermit B. Nash Academic Scholarship

One scholarship worth $5,000.00 is awarded annually, which is renewable for up to four years of study. US citizens (permanent residents only) diagnosed with sickle cell disease and enrolled in four-year college programs are eligible to apply.

To determine winners, the Scholarship Committee takes into account each applicant’s GPA (3.0 or higher required), SAT scores, and level of community involvement. How sickle cell has impacted his/her life, is another consideration undertaken by the committee to evaluate each candidate.
