High School Scholarship Program


Stanford Blood Center is dedicated to providing a safe and adequate blood supply for patients, as well as supporting the community that helps meet this need. It is in this spirit that we will honor students who actively support our mission through hosting successful blood drives at their high schools.

Stanford Blood Center will award up to $1,000 in scholarship funds to select candidates each academic year. Qualified applicants will have participated in coordinating a successful blood drive on their high school campus.
