- 15 August 2017
Mesothelioma.net is now offering qualifying college students the chance to win a $2000 scholarship for detailing their personal experiences either living with cancer or watching a loved one battle cancer. We hope to offer this financial assistance to help one deserving student meet his or her academic goals.
Any student who has lived with and fought against any type of cancer, not limited to mesothelioma, is welcome to apply. We also encourage any students who have watched a family member or close friend go through the experience of fighting cancer.
We are now accepting applications for the next fall semester with a deadline of August 15, 2017. We will award one student a $2000 scholarship each fall semester.
Students applying for this scholarship must be enrolled at a two-year, four-year, community, or junior college, or in a graduate degree program on a full time basis. All college students in the United States are eligible, but must be in good academic standing at their institution with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
The main component of your application for this scholarship will be an essay, between 500 and 800 words, detailing your personal experiences with cancer. Tell us your story, how cancer has impacted your life, how you overcame adversity, how it shaped your future and goals, and how it has changed your outlook on life. Please also tell us why this scholarship is important for you.
Please include your name, email address, phone number, and university you attend or plan to attend.
