Information regarding Eligibility
The intent of this award is to enable students of academic excellence who are struggling with the financial strain of cancer to more easily afford college. Students must be enrolled in a college/university. Also, students must be NJ residents and/or attending college in NJ. Please refer to the FAQs on the Resource Page for more information.
For the 2014 grant cycle, we will be awarding approximately $10,000 in scholarships in 2014. Eligibility will be determined based on a combination of several factors including a student’s demonstration of financial hardship, letters of recommendation, the impact cancer has had on his or her family, and his or her merit. Applicants must show proof of financial hardship and should show academic merit while enrolled in a demanding course of study. A student can reapply for this award during his/her four undergraduate years. Scholarship recipients will be awarded directly via their two- or four-year institution and all scholarship money can be applied to tuition and room/board only. Awards are limited to students studying full-time at an institution with the express interest of obtaining an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree. Applicants must be permanent residents of New Jersey but may attend college anywhere in the United States. They must be US citizens.
