Scholarship Resources

College Scholarships

Cancer for College is a competitive scholarship and unfortunately with over a thousand applicants every year, we are unable to offer a scholarship to every applicant. That said, there are other resources at your disposal if we are unable to help you or if you need additional help beyond what cancer for college can provide. A great resource is www.collegescholarships.org.
