  • Scholarship Description
  • The Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship scholarship was created in honor of Beth Carew because she was a model for us all. She was an outspoken advocate for the needs of families with bleeding disorders and for the needs of women who were affected by bleeding disorders in any way. We at the Colburn-Keenan Foundation, joined by the Carew family, are proud to offer this scholarship program to young people and adults with bleeding disorders to assist in their efforts to obtain a higher education.

    Any undergraduate student with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, or a related inherited bleeding disorder is eligible to apply for the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship as long as all of the below criteria are also met:
    -Applicants must be diagnosed with an inherited bleeding disorder. Students who do not have an inherited bleeding disorder but whose parent(s) or sibling(s) have an inherited bleeding disorder are not eligible to apply, even though they are affected by an inherited bleeding disorder
    -Applicants must have volunteered time and energy to directly benefit the bleeding disorders community. Regardless of any legitimate barriers to one's ability to accomplish volunteerism within the bleeding disorders community, applicants should not apply if they cannot fulfill this requirement
    -Applicants must be entering or attending an accredited 2-year or 4-year undergraduate institution in the United States to obtain their first undergraduate degree. High school seniors, undergraduate freshmen, undergraduate sophomores, and undergraduate juniors may apply. Students who are pursuing or resuming an undergraduate degree later in adulthood may apply even if there was a gap in their academic career
    -Applicants who are past recipients of the Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship may reapply throughout their undergraduate career

November 7, 2017

by Susan Dutca

"It's okay to be white" signs were scattered on college campuses across the country, as well as in Canada over the past week. Reportedly, the signs were first suggested on an online chat forum called 4chan, calling on people to place posters in their area on Halloween night. At Harvard Law School, at least 20 handmade stickers with the message "It's ok to be white" were posted on light poles and electrical boxes.
