The Living Donor Scholarship: How Educational Scholarships Can Provide Financial Incentives and Protect Altruistic Giving

Abstract:

This paper proposes to find an acceptable midpoint between the efficiency of markets and the rhetoric of altruism and gift to craft a solution to the shortage of transplant kidneys for needy patients. The paper advocates educational scholarships for donors willing to make a live donation of one kidney. The scholarship program proposed stands to improve four key weaknesses found in the current system of organ allocation: the shortage of kidneys, the logistical limits of a system dependent upon deceased donation, and the racial imbalance in kidney allocation. The paper then explains how the rhetoric of educational scholarships fits within the preferred paradigm of altruism and gift, and dampens the coercive power of unrestricted markets for human organs. Finally, the paper fashions a means of defending the scholarship program within the strict prohibitions imposed on financial incentives by current organ donation law.
