Stanford Blood Center is dedicated to providing a safe and adequate blood supply for local patients, as well as supporting the community that helps meet this need. In that spirit, we hope to honor students who actively support our mission through hosting successful blood drives at their high schools.
SBC will award up to $1,000 in scholarship funds to select high school students each academic year. Qualified applicants will be graduating seniors who have participated in coordinating a successful blood drive on their high school campus. Students may use the funds toward any college related expenses, such as tuition, books, housing, or meals.
