High school Scholarship Opportunities

Participating high schools must sponsor two blood drives per school year to qualify and must collect a minimum number of units of blood throughout the school year. 

If the school meets the minimum requirements, the school will select a student to be the recipient of the $100 scholarship. If the minimum requirements are met and exceeded, there will be an additional $1 for each unit collected above the threshold guidelines, with a maximum payout of $500.  LifeServe Blood Center encourages the high school to award the scholarship to a student that has been active with the blood drives or has demonstrated a strong sense of civic duty.
