Student Scholarship Program - Awardees


The Histiocytosis Association is honored to provide an inaugural scholarship program for those impacted by histiocytic disorders in the United States. The initial launch of the program included (1) $500 scholarship available to an eligible student in NJ, DE. PA or NY thanks to special funding received for student leadership in those geographical areas, as well as (2) additional $500 scholarships open to eligible students throughout the entire United States, which was personally funded by the Histiocytosis Association Board of Trustees and Staff.

We hope to continue to expand upon this program in the future. If you are interested in contributing to ensure this program can continue for many years to come, please contact Heather at or donate here (All funds donated will go towards ensuring the availability of future scholarships).
