Florida Hemophilia Association's

Daniel L. Carlin Memorial Scholarship Program

We had an overwhelming response and the 2022 Scholarship is now closed. Thank you for applying.

Daniel L. Carlin was a wonderful young man who will forever be a part of our bleeding disorders community in Florida. He was a friendly, outgoing, and very thoughtful person with a big heart who never missed a birthday or anniversary of those most special to him. Daniel had severe hemophilia A and unfortunately passed away in July 2000 at the age of 24 from complications of AIDS. Shortly after their son’s passing, Daniel’s parents Bob, a former FHA Board Member, and Beth created the scholarship program in his memory.

Florida Hemophilia Association is proud to have awarded eight Daniel L. Carlin scholarships in 2022. The Scholarship Committee selects the recipients of scholarships ranging in value, with a maximum value of $1,500 each. FHA sponsors these scholarships to encourage post high-school education for students with a bleeding disorder living in the State of Florida.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of their academic achievements, leadership and initiative, participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals, how having a bleeding disorder has affected personal and family circumstances, and references. Applicants must either be entering or attending a community college, junior college, four-year college, university, or vocational school.

The 2023 Daniel L. Carlin Memorial Scholarship Program is currently closed.
