The Melissa Boston Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Melissa Boston who, in January 2019, tragically lost her battle with cancer at the age of 36.
It is our hope that once our scholarship winner has graduated and engaged in a productive career, they will help honor the memory of Melissa by giving future students a similar financial opportunity, engaging in cancer awareness campaigns and serving their community.

The winner will be publicly announced on Sep 10, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
