Host a blood drive
Limited-Time Scholarship Program Deadline Extended to March 31!
Through our virtual blood drive program, student leaders from high schools, colleges and trade schools can recruit family, friends and fellow students to donate blood. And, due to the emergency need for convalescent plasma, for a limited time each COVID Rescue Team Student Leader who successfully recruits at least 30 donation credits will be eligible to receive a scholarship.*
Vitalant tests all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies so, along with you and our dedicated donors, we can directly help patients fighting coronavirus. As a COVID Rescue Team Student Leader, your donor recruitment efforts will help identify potential convalescent plasma donors. This special blood plasma contains antibodies for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, and each donation could be prescribed to help up to four people still fighting COVID-19.
The program period runs through March 31, 2021 or until funds are fully distributed.
Important Scholarship Details
Scholarship Deadline Extended! To qualify for this limited-time scholarship, all donation credits must be earned by March 31.
Each student leader needs to meet the 30-credit minimum to qualify for a one-time $500 scholarship, and each student leader can earn up to $1,000.
If you’ve been participating in the program and you’ve reached a scholarship tier, make the most of the moment by continuing to leverage friends and family to earn more scholarship money! Your unique VBD link still works, and your recruitment representative is still a resource to you. We encourage you to continue promoting your virtual blood drive and help patients in need.
