MKBC High School Hero Blood Donor Recruitment Scholarship

It has never been easier for students and schools to supplement their scholarship funds – while educating, engaging and exciting student volunteers about community involvement and supporting the constant need for blood in their communities. The High School Hero Donor Recruitment Scholarship is designed to encourage and reward high school Blood Drive coordinators and/or sponsoring high schools for their efforts in stimulating interest and increasing the available blood supply within the Pennsylvania and New Jersey counties served by Miller-Keystone Blood Center.

By hosting one or more Blood Drives and collecting a minimum of 50 points during the school year,  participating schools are guaranteed a scholarship award!  Through our Community Blood Drive program, your school and students can help bolster the regional blood supply and save lives in their community, while at the same time create new educational opportunities for the schools and their students.

MKBC Student Volunteer Scholarship

The Bill & Jacqueline Younger Volunteer Scholarship is named in honor of two of MKBC’s most dedicated service volunteers. The award acknowledges outstanding student participation at MKBC donor centers or drives in which the students act as service volunteers (canteen attendants, etc). Presented to a graduating high school senior, this scholarship recognizes the importance of student volunteerism to the health and welfare of our community!
