PCRF Opens College Scholarship Application for Pediatric Cancer Survivors

2017 will be the first class of recipients of the PCRF College Scholarship Award!

College-bound students who have overcome pediatric cancer can now apply for a college scholarship through the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. All college-bound students face challenges, but none more than students struggling to overcome a life threatening disease. Childhood cancer survivors overcome many difficult obstacles, both physically and emotionally during and after treatment. Students who have fought cancer often interrupt their education and extracurricular activities in order to complete chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery.Gold tassels

Winning in research means lives are saved and families are kept whole. Giving hope and futures to these children is why PCRF exists. The PCRF Scholarship Committee will award annual scholarships to demonstrate a commitment of improving the quality of life for those affected by pediatric cancer. The focus of the scholarship is to support secondary and/or post graduate education for survivors of pediatric cancer. This scholarship is offered nationwide.

PCRF invites any pediatric cancer survivor to be a part of this first class of scholarship recipients.The scholarships are offered annually to eligible childhood cancer survivors who are graduating high school seniors, community college students or 4 year university students.
