The Brad Miller Memorial Scholarship has been created to commemorate and remember an exceptional young man from the bleeding disorder community. Brad was born with severe hemophilia in 1979, a time when hemophilia treatment was less refined and many treatment products were ultimately found to be unsafe. These and other life issues contributed to the many challenges experienced by this scholarship’s namesake. Throughout his 29 years, Brad held his head high and did his very best to live each day fully. Brad’s immediate and extended family members supported him during his short life and continue to be active volunteers and mentors for the bleeding disorder community. Through this scholarship, Brad and his family’s spirit of living and dedication to giving will continue to honor Brad and the entire bleeding disorder community for many years to come.

The SWOHF board and the members of the scholarship committee acknowledge the many challenges students face during their journey to complete a post-secondary educational program or beyond. It is hoped that the financial assistance provided by the Brad Miller Memorial Scholarship of $2,000.00 will help recipients continue their quest for knowledge and the attainment of their dreams.

The Brad Miller Memorial Scholarship is open to any person with a bleeding disorder diagnosis, i.e., hemophilia, von Willebrand disease or other inherited bleeding disorders, who receive treatment at Dayton Children’s Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center. The applicant must be seeking post-secondary education at a university/college or technical school or be enrolled in a graduate school program.
