Childhood Cancer Survivors Offered Scholarships

The American Cancer Society's Mid-South Division has made scholarships available for young cancer survivors who want to earn their degree.�� Eligible candidates who have fought cancer may be awarded $1,000 scholarships toward higher education at accredited colleges or vocational schools.

"Childhood cancer survivors have faced incredible challenges and overcome them," said Angel Strange, quality of life director for the Mid-South Division of the American Cancer Society. "Awarding these scholarships is our way of saying congratulations on winning your fight and keep up the good work."

To be eligible, applicants must be under 25, have had a cancer diagnosis before age 21 and be a resident of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, or Floyd or Clark counties in Indiana and a United States citizen. Candidates must also have a GPA of at least 2.5 and been accepted to an accredited school.

The American Cancer Society has awarded over 1300 scholarships since the beginning of the program in 2000.�� This scholarship program was designed to demonstrate how the American Cancer Society offers assistance to cancer survivors.
