Cancer for College Scholarship

Website: Cancer for College

Description

Since 1993, Cancer for College, a registered 501(c)3 charitable foundation, has provided hope and inspiration to cancer survivors in the form of college scholarships.

Applicants are not discriminated against based on sex, race or religious belief. Community college applicants are eligible but award may not be greater than the amount needed. All remaining applicants will be eligible for other one-time awards. Awards are typically $5,000 each. Scholarship recipients experiencing health-related issues that force them to leave school may request a one-time extension of their scholarship, not to exceed one school year. Recipients exceeding this time will forgo their scholarship, but may reapply when ready to return to school.

 
Eligibility
  • You must personally have been diagnosed with cancer.
  • You are either attending or planning to attend an accredited college or university, located in the US.
  • You are enrolled/planning to enroll in a degree-earning program, or certificate-earning program from an accredited university, trade school or similar program.

  • Adjusted gross income for the applicant (or their parent/guardian, if they are dependent) for the most recent tax year must be no more than $150,000.

At this time, the organization can only provide scholarships to residents of the United States attending school in the US and Puerto Rico.
