Scholarships 2020-03-03T17:08:04-05:00

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.

The Ulman Foundation offers scholarships to young adults, who have been impacted by cancer. More specifically, applicants must have been between the ages of 15-39 during their own diagnosis/treatment or during the diagnosis/treatment of a parent/guardian, sibling, and/or spouse.
Scholarship winners will be awarded a total of $2500 over two academic semesters. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the degree granting institution and can be applied to either undergraduate or graduate programs.
