Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship Program
This program is open for applicants as of January 18th, 2021.


The Beth Carew Memorial Scholarship Program is an annual competitive educational scholarship sponsored by the Colburn-Keenan Foundation. This scholarship was created in honor of Beth Carew. Beth was an energetic, bright, loving, and caring woman. She was a person with determination and spunk. She was deeply concerned about her family and her community. She was one of the few women to be diagnosed with hemophilia A. Beth Carew died in 1994 of complications associated with Hemophilia.


This special scholarship was created in her memory because she was a model for us all. She was an outspoken advocate for the needs of families with bleeding disorders and for the needs of women who were affected by bleeding disorders in any way. She was a kind and compassionate soul and a relentless fighter. She lived and died with the challenges of hemophilia. She was truly a woman of whom we all can be proud. We at the Colburn-Keenan Foundation, joined by the Carew family, are proud to offer this scholarship program to young people and adults with bleeding disorders to assist in their efforts to obtain a higher education.??


The number of scholarship awards varies and the scholarship amounts range from $500 – $6,000 annually and are not renewable. The Colburn-Keenan Foundation reserves the right to change the number of awards and the amounts based on the applicant pool and available funding.?

In the U.S., we are projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be compounded by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Such a deficiency would negatively impact our society at large, but would disproportionately affect vulnerable populations. Already-existing health disparities would widen. To counteract the projected shortage and protect our communities from the worst of its effects, it’s more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue or advance their careers in nursing.

In order for our healthcare system – and more broadly, our society – to be able to address the needs of its people, we need well-trained nurses to counteract the shortage. View links below for more information.

Though their labor often goes unseen, everyday public health professionals go to work at government bodies, research institutions, and nonprofit organizations in order to improve the quality of our lives. Those who study public health are well-equipped to promote community and environmental health, as well as enhance underserved populations’ accessibility to healthcare. If you are interested in a career, job, scholarship opportunities, certification and licensing information in the public health sector you can find information here:
