The deadline to apply for a BotsIQ Scholarship. All applications must be received by Monday, April 1, 2019.
Despite miraculous advancements in medicine, there is no substitute for human blood. The need for blood products can occur in persons of all ages, from premature infants to the elderly and is vital to ensure excellence in the delivery of healthcare. Vitalant, formerly The Central Blood Bank, is responsible for donor recruitment, blood collection, testing, etc. in our region. They must see 500 donors a day to ensure an adequate blood supply for area patients in need of transfusions in the hospitals we service.
Vitalant has created a scholarship division in order to thank schools and students for their donations. Each participant in the blood drive equates to funding. Vitalant donates the funding once a year to area schools for scholarship purposes. Each year the funds will be different. We’ll advertise which scholarship questions we are utilizing each year based on the number of donors and funds awarded by Vitalant. For the 2019 graduating class, we are offering three scholarships worth $750 each for a total of $2,250 in blood drive funds. You are eligible to apply to all three, but can only win one scholarship.
Completed essays are due to Mrs. Babik by Friday, April 26, 2019 by 12:00 p.m. Late essays will not be accepted. A completed essay includes a typed response to one or all of the scholarship prompts, your signature at the bottom of each page submitted and a copy of your high school transcript submitted with your essay(s).

Jennifer A. Morgan Memorial Scholarship deadline is approaching!
The Jennifer A. Morgan Memorial Scholarship Fund
was created at The Pittsburgh Foundation to provide scholarships to graduating seniors who are pursuing a degree in nursing or health related professions.
The scholarship will be awarded to an individual who has demonstrated
sound academic achievement throughout high school, participated in a variety of school and community activities, and demonstrated an ability to succeed in their educational goals.
The review committee will look for evidence of volunteerism and passion for helping others.
This scholarship was named after Jennifer Morgan,
who graduated from Baldwin High School in 1973. Jenny trained to become a registered nurse at the Community College of Allegheny County, graduating in 1984. She worked in Labor and Delivery at several local hospitals, and later became a case manager and utilization specialist in the healthcare field. She excelled in her field and was loved by colleagues and patients alike. Both at work and in her community of Whitehall and later Bethel Park, Jenny lived a life of servitude to others.
Although not a smoker, Jenny was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 and lost her courageous battle on May 28, 2011. Her husband, James, established this scholarship in her name. The hope is that it will be granted to individuals who most closely emulate the spirit of Jenny by demonstrating similar character traits of selflessness, compassion, and dedication to the wellness of others.
