These days, students seem to be willing to get involved in community services. By helping people dealing with the harsh reality of life, students can develop empathy, compassion and leadership skills and expand their knowledge. Keeping this fact in mind, the American National Red Cross has brought an amazing funding offer called Leaders Save Lives Scholarship Program. To be an ideal candidate for this program, you need to be currently enrolled in high school, college, university, technical school, trade school, or community college.
This is an amazing opportunity that will give you a chance to help others and get financial support for your education. During this program, all you will need to do is organize a blood drive during summer or winter break, and if your blood drive collects at least 25 pints, you can win this scholarship. This program has many benefits for students. If you take part in this program, you can improve the life quality of others, cultivate some essential field skills and acquire financial backing that you need to take your educational journey to a whole new level.
American National Red Cross is also recognized as American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization based in Washington, D.C. It was formed on 21 May 1881 by Clara Barton to provide emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education in the United States. It is a comprehensive network of donors, volunteers and employees who hold the common mission of preventing and relieving suffering in the USA and across the world.
