Whether you’re a student that has stuck through chemotherapy treatments with a parent, or battled against this devastating illness yourself, you can receive financial scholarships that will help you pay for college.
The Mesothelioma Group invites you to submit an essay detailing how cancer (not just mesothelioma) has affected your life. Essays should be 500-1,500 words, and can describe your story in any way you choose as long as it provides information related to the prompt. Winners of this essay scholarship will receive $1,500. The essays will be judged and winners chosen based on how they have experienced and overcome strong adversity in the face of cancer. Academic standing, financial need, and volunteer work will also be considered. The Mesothelioma Group hopes this scholarship will help further awareness of cancer and promote the discovery of a cure.
Stories can inspire and move people to action. Your story could change lives. Send in your essay today and help make strides toward a future of a hope – a future without cancer.
