Childhood Cancer Survivor College Scholarship Program
|American Cancer Society, Great West Division|
The Great West Division of the American Cancer Society has established a scholarship program to give young cancer survivors the opportunity to pursue their post-secondary education from an accredited university, community college or vocational technical school.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Survivor College Scholarship program provides funds each academic year in increments of $2,500 per student. Recipients have a lifetime scholarship limit of $10,000. After the initial award, scholarship renewal in subsequent years is based on successfully meeting program eligibility requirements, continuous academic achievement, and level of commitment as an American Cancer Society volunteer. A previous award recipient is not guaranteed a scholarship award. Due to limited resources, the American Cancer Society is not able to award scholarships to all cancer survivors.
