Cancer Survivor Scholarships are scholarships that are available for students who have survived cancer. These scholarships are typically awarded to help with the cost of tuition, room and board, and other expenses related to college education.
Here are a few examples of cancer survivor scholarships:
- The Cancer for College scholarship is awarded to cancer survivors who are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university.
- The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults offers scholarships to young adult cancer survivors who are pursuing higher education.
- The Cancer Survivors' Fund provides financial assistance to cancer survivors for education and training.
- The St. Baldrick's Foundation scholarship program is for childhood cancer survivors who are pursuing post-secondary education.
- The American Cancer Society's scholarship program, the Reach to Recovery scholarship, is for survivors of breast cancer who are pursuing higher education.
- The National Children's Cancer Society offers scholarships to young adults who have survived cancer and are pursuing higher education.
These are a few examples, and many other organizations and foundations also offer scholarships for cancer survivors. It's important to check the specific requirements, deadlines and application process for each scholarship. Also, students should keep an eye on the deadlines, as they can vary from year to year and apply for several scholarships to increase their chances of getting one.
