Transplant Scholarships?

I am in college in Wisconsin. Does anyone know of any scholarships that are designated for transplant recipients?

I volunteer, I am a very good student so I know I could get some scholarships that don't have to do with transplantation, but I think it would still narrow the field a bit. Haha!

I have looked around the internet, but all I have found are scholarships for high school students, scholarships for transplant recipients who are "TRIO" members, and scholarships for transplant recipients on the east coast. :) Maybe I'm asking for too much, but if anyone knows of anything, I would love to hear from you!! 

Thanks,

Katie :)

  • Hi, Katie, I also have not found much information regarding scholarships for transplant patients; I also attend college and have received a kidney transplant.Please let me know if you should stumble onto scholarship resources for transplantation patients and I will also do the same. Thanks

  • Hi Katie

    Thank you for sharing! Please let us know what you find.

  • I would like to suggest, if you have not already done so, that you contact the NKF to see if they are aware of institutions that offer scholarships to TX donors/recipients, high school students, etc. 

    Good luck. 

  • Look at the college website that you are planning to attend. Sometimes they have scholarships for receipents, donor family members, Ect.
    The college my daughter is attending has one for donor family members though someone who was a donor. Did not apply to us, since I am a recipent.
    Good luck in college!
