Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the United States. Nearly one of every 110 babies is born with a CHD.

Approximately 25% of children born with a CHD will need heart surgery or other interventions in their first year of life to survive. People with CHDs face a life-long risk of health problems such as issues with growth and eating, developmental delays, difficulty with exercise, heart rhythm problems, heart failure, sudden cardiac arrest or stroke.

This scholarship seeks to support students who have been affected by congenital heart disease either personally or through a sibling.  

Any high school student with at least a 3.0 GPA who has a form of congenital heart disease or a sibling with congenital heart disease may apply for this scholarship.  

To apply, tell us about you and your family’s experience with congenital heart disease, including the type and the way it has directly impacted you.
