Canadian Hemophilia Society James Kreppner Memorial Scholarship and Bursary Program

In an effort to bring young volunteers into the CHS, and in recognition that a sound education is of utmost importance (particularly for those who might not be able to succeed in a vocation requiring strenuous physical labour), the CHS offers the opportunity for those who qualify to receive a scholarship or bursary in the amount of $5,000 to attend a post-secondary institution of their choice.

To honour James Kreppner’s memory, the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) Scholarship and Bursary Program has been renamed the CHS James Kreppner Memorial Scholarship and Bursary Program. James was a lawyer and long-time volunteer and member of the CHS Board of Directors and a highly respected, articulate and exemplary activist who passed away in 2009 due to HIV and hepatitis C-related complications. The CHS James Kreppner Memorial Scholarship and Bursary Program is an on-going tribute to honour James’ dedication, intelligence and commitment to the CHS and community service.
