John W. Cavanaugh Adult Continuing Education Scholarship Application
About John W. Cavanaugh:
This New England Hemophilia Association new educational scholarship is named in memory of John W. Cavanaugh. John was born in 1926 in Massachusetts and grew up in a time when treatment for hemophilia was marginal, at best. Yet, he never let it stop him from striving to provide a better life for himself and his family. The best example of that is the inspiration for starting this scholarship in his honor. At age 30, John went back to school to get his college degree. That required eight years of night school. During those eight years, he held a full-time job, got married and had six children. Child number seven arrived the year after his graduation from Northeastern University with a degree in mechanical engineering. This scholarship is brought to the NEHA community by Jane Cavanaugh Smith to help honor her dad’s legacy and to assist adults in the NEHA community who wish to return to school.
Criteria of the Scholarship:
