We’re committed to helping young adults (ages 15-39) continue their education after their own cancer diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.

  • Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 39 during their own diagnosis/treatment or during the diagnosis/treatment of their parent or sibling or spouse.

  • Scholarship winners are awarded a total of $2500 over two academic semesters. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the scholarship recipient’s school.

  • Many scholarships offered share similar applicant criteria. Applicants only need to submit one application, which will be considered for any and all scholarships  the student is eligible for.
