Society offers scholarship to Colorado survivors
There are very few times in a person’s life more traumatic than
the day they hear the words: “You have cancer.” In an instant,
their lives turn upside down and they are faced with myriad
decisions, questions and fears.
Now imagine hearing those words and being a young child whose
only concerns should be too much homework or when they can play
with their friends.
For those young people who have gone through the trauma of a
cancer diagnosis, the American Cancer Society has developed a
program that will take some of the concern from their shoulders as
they approach their college years. The society’s Cancer Survivor
College Scholarship Program is designed to help students who have
been diagnosed with cancer pay for part of their tuition.
The Cancer Survivor College Scholarship Program is designed to
provide financial assistance for young cancer survivors as they
pursue their post secondary education. The possible lifetime award
is up to $10,000 per student, offered in increments of $2,500 per
academic year. Applications from qualified Colorado students are
being accepted now through Feb. 25. Application packets can be
obtained by calling 866-500-3272 or 1-800-ACS-2345.
The scholarships may be used for enrollment and attendance
tuition, fees, and books required for course instruction at an
accredited college, university, community college, or
vocational/technical school or visit cancer.org.
To be eligible to apply for the scholarships, the students must
be cancer survivors diagnosed before the age of 21 and age 25 or
younger at the time of submitting the application, graduating from
a high school and/or continuing college in the upcoming school
year, a U.S. citizen and resident of Colorado, have a 2.5 GPA, and
will be a full-time student. If selected to receive a scholarship,
the money will be awarded in May 2011. Past scholarship winners
need to reapply for the scholarship each year.
