Education Level:

Has/has had cancer, or has been impacted by the cancer of a close family member

Cancer can be a devastating diagnosis, a difficult fight, and an all-around trauma for both the individual and their loved ones.

Being diagnosed with cancer often comes with intensive rounds of radiation or chemotherapy, which can leave one both physically and financially drained, making it difficult to remain in school. A family member’s diagnosis can also be life-altering, often leading one to have to take on additional responsibilities and bear the burden of worrying about a loved one’s health.

This scholarship seeks to support students who have been impacted by cancer to make their journey through higher education easier.

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who has cancer or has been impacted by an immediate family member’s cancer may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how your experience with cancer affected your educational and professional goals.
