Each year, the Kevin Child Scholarship is awarded to an exceptional student in memory of Kevin Child. As a child born with hemophilia in the late 1960s, Kevin had lived a life filled with challenges from the start. When he died of AIDS-related complications in 1989, he was just a few days short of his college graduation. Since hemophilia already presents a young person with challenges in life, the opportunity to obtain a higher education should never become an obstacle as well. In honor of Kevin’s legacy, the Child family hopes this scholarship program will provide some assistance for students striving to acquire a higher education. Eligible individuals are those diagnosed with either hemophilia A or B and a high school senior with aspirations of attending an institute of higher education (college, university or vocational-technical school), or a college student already pursuing a post-secondary education.
