Affected by cancer

Cancer is a life-changing disease that can permanently alter the lives of those diagnosed and their families.

Each year, around 1.9 million people are diagnosed with cancer. A cancer diagnosis can mean intense battles, declining health, and possible death but can also bring about newfound resilience, love, and strength.

This scholarship seeks to support students who have been impacted by cancer, whether they’ve lost loved ones or are survivors themselves.

Any high school senior in Texas who has at least a 3.0 GPA and has been affected by cancer may apply, but students who are Christian or involved in music, arts, cancer research, mentoring, communication/speech, or volunteering/advocacy are preferred. 

To apply, tell us about yourself and how cancer affected your life journey?
