The Susan G. Komen for the Cure offers college scholarships to aid students of financial burden due to the loss of a parent or guardian to breast cancer, or to their own breast cancer diagnosis.
The scholarship is a $10,000 a year for up to four years to attend a state university in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Scholarship recipients are selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, financial need and demonstrated leadership potential.
Last year, the program's applicants increased by 80 percent, but due to this increase, the amount of students offered the grant decreased by nearly half, which left many students without support. To help grow the program and to help students, Komen is asking for support by donating.
Deadline is Oct. 15, 2012
Applicants must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for this scholarship:
Must have lost a parent/guardian to breast cancer
OR Must be a breast cancer survivor diagnosed at 25 years or younger
Must be a high school senior, college freshman, sophomore or junior
Must plan to attend a state-supported college or university in the state where they permanently reside (students in Washington DC can attend state-supported schools in Maryland or Virginia)
Must have a high school and/or college GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale
Must be no older than 25 years old by May 2013
Must be a U.S. citizen, or documented permanent resident of the U.S. (or US Territory)
Never at any time have been subject to any disciplinary action by any institution or entity, including, but not limited to, any educational or law enforcement agency
Must be a driven advocate for breast cancer education and research who is able to complete a minimum of 20 hours of community service per semester
