The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is proud to announce the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Scholarship program to benefit college students whose lives have been affected by cancer. $4,000 will be awarded each semester (Spring 2015 and Fall 2015) to one student who has battled any kind of cancer or who has witnessed the personal struggle of a parent, sibling or other immediate family member or close friend.
Applicants can share their story in either essay or video format. The application deadline for the Spring 2015 semester is December 1st. For the Fall 2015 semester, applications must be submitted by March 31st.
For application criteria and information on how to apply, please visit the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Scholarship page.
This scholarship program was created in honor of Heather Von St. James, a mesothelioma cancer survivor, and her dedicated husband, Cameron, who enrolled in college when Heather was diagnosed. They know that, no matter the hardship, every little bit of help counts.
