Glory's Hope 2018/19 School Year Scholarship
Welcome to Glory's Hope Scholarship Program Application!
Jeremiah Attaochu, the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He founded Glory's Hope Sickle Cell Foundation in 2015. The Glory's Hope Scholarship is funded by the Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to community outreach, educational and research support programs for sickle cell diseases (SCD) all over the United States and the continent of Africa. Our undertaking includes but not limited to educational promotions that build awareness of SCD and related circumstances and programs that provide services such as mentoring, tutoring and educational support for individuals and families impacted by sickle cell disease. Glory’s Hope Scholarship program offers $2,500.00 for the first winner, $1,500.00 for the second winner and $1,000.00 for the third winner of the scholarships. This will be the individual candidate with Sickle Cell, who have either enrolled, or been accepted at a post-secondary institution (trade school, college, or university) in the United States of America.
The Glory’s Hope Scholarship Program places greater emphasis on the candidate determination to succeed than his/her academic record and test scores. We firmly believe being adequately prepared for college also empowers the candidates to achieve their dreams.

To determine winners, the Scholarship Committee in Glory’s Hope Sickle Cell Foundation takes into account each applicant’s GPA (2.5 or higher required), SAT scores, and level of community involvement. How sickle cell has impacted the candidate’s life, is another consideration undertaken by the committee to evaluate each applicant. Besides, each applicant’s essay (500 to 700 words) addresses personal Sickle Cell challenges and those which impact society, as a whole.
Recipients of Glory’s Hope scholarship will attend the Glory’s Hope Award Night & National Convention. Airfare and one night’s hotel accommodation will be provided to candidates that won the scholarships to accept the award. Winners of the scholarships will also be asked to prepare and deliver a brief presentation at the Convention.
