BioRx / Hemophilia of North Carolina Educational Scholarship Program
At BioRx, our goal is to help individuals with bleeding disorders to live life to the fullest. This includes supporting their pursuit of higher education and career development. Each year, BioRx awards scholarships to four (4) individuals who are affected by hemophilia or related bleeding disorders. This can include patients themselves, or their siblings, parents or other caregiver. At least one of these scholarships is awarded to an applicant pursuing education in a health-related field.

“I wanted to sincerely thank you all for offering college scholarships to the hemophilia community. This type of a donation to families that are somewhat burdened with our bleeding disorders already have hardships. So, for you to offer to help the community in this way is a blessing for us all. I didn’t receive the scholarship, but I’d like to sincerely thank you for the opportunity.”
