Organ Recovery Systems Educational Scholarship Program
Live application window: November 16, 2023 through January 11, 2024 3:00 pm CT

The Organ Recovery Systems Educational Scholarship Program has been established to assist children of employees of Lifeline Scientific, Inc., Organ Recovery Systems and their identified partner organizations who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants to the Organ Recovery Systems Educational Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time employees of Lifeline Scientific, Inc., Organ Recovery Systems or identified partner organizations who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Plan to major in a STEM**(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) field of study.
    **Students pursuing a medical-related STEM field are eligible to apply.

Children of executive-level employees are ineligible.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted. Provided qualified applications are received, at least one recipient will be selected from the Lifeline Scientific company, and one recipient will be selected from the partner organization group.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent and continuation of the program by Organ Recovery Systems and Lifeline Scientific, Inc.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


All applicants will be notified in mid-March.
