The CURE – Cancer Support Scholarship was created by the Lep Foundation for Youth Education for students diagnosed with cancer (a public charity providing financial assistance to survivors of childhood & adolescent cancers seeking to further their education).
CURE Magazine is the indispensable guide to every stage of the cancer experience combining science and humanity to make cancer understandable. The Lep Foundation and CURE Media Group work in a collaborative effort to support students diagnosed with cancer and have shown the courage and determination to complete their college education despite significant challenges. This scholarship will help cover college costs for these individuals who have experienced financial hardship due to overwhelming medical expenses. The scholarship will be awarded to a qualified individual seeking to further their education by attending college. The amount of the scholarship is $5,000.
The scholarship is designated for students who were diagnosed with cancer and whose disease and related treatments placed a significant financial burden on them and their families. Scholarship recipients must furnish a letter of confirmation by a licensed physician as proof of their cancer diagnosis. Please note that this documentation will be required following the award notification and should not be submitted with the application. Applicant must be a US citizen residing in the USA.
The recipient must demonstrate academic achievement through evidence of working to one's potential and be accepted for admission at an institution of higher education, e.g. college, community college, university or vocational school. All grades must be substantiated by official documentation.
