Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship

In 2013, the Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of Les Gutter, a dedicated
treasurer of FAMOHIO for more than twenty years. Les’s financial expertise, attention to detail, and
strong dedication to the Ohio bleeding disorders community helped ensure the continued success of
FAMOHIO, Inc. In addition to Les’s financial expertise, he was motivated by a strong spirit of
volunteerism. It is to that dedication and spirit of giving that the Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship was
created to promote and inspire young persons with bleeding disorders to pursue their career goals
through post-secondary education. 

The Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship applications have been reviewed, scored, and carefully evaluated by the FAMOHIO scholarship committee and…drumroll…the recipients for 2023-2024 are:

The application for the 2024 Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship will be posted to the FAMHIO website at the beginning of 2024.  Updates to the current scholarship process and timelines will be explained in detail.
