Of course, you can always dontate blood specifically for African-Americans with sickle-cell disease this Black History Month, but if you're looking for another way to give back to the community, consider mentoring a high school senior with the disease. Not only will you be another support for the teen emotionally, but you can also help encourage a bright future for them by assisting them in their college search, application process, and scholarship discovery.

To get your started, we've compiled a list of 5 scholarships just for people with sickle cell disease. Read on for more info, and then, spread the word! You can help even further by donating to a scholarship or two.

1) The Kermit B. Nash Academic Scholarship: Named after former UNC Chapel Hill professor, Dr. Kermit B. Nash, this scholarship will give its recipient $20,000 over the course of four years, split up into payments of $2,500 per semester.

2) Candice's Sickle Cell Fund: This sickle cell awareness organization awards three scholarships every year to rising college students with SCD. Each recipient gets $1,500 to put toward his or her college tuition.

3) The Reshod K. Robinson Scholarship: In honor of Reshod, who passed away in 2012 from sickle cell disease, this scholarship presents rising college sophomores and above, who have a GPA of at least 2.5 and who are members of a nationally recognized sickle cell association, with $1,500.

4) The International Association of Sickle Cell Nurse and Physicians Assistants Scholarship: To apply for one of these $500 scholarships, a student must have SCD and must either already be enrolled in -- or already been accepted to -- an institution of higher learning, be that a four-year university, a trade school, etc.

5) Incight Scholarship: Available for students with disabilities, including sickle cell disease, this scholarship's award amount ranges from $500 to $2,500 and requires that applicants be residents of Oregon, Washington state, or California. Note: Applicants do not have to be attending college in those states, they just must be legal residents of those states.
