Cancer Survivor Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

2020 is estimated to have more than 1.8 million new cancer cases in the United States. Cancer is a disease that can have a devastating impact on an individual's life as well as their friends and family. The impact can be widespread as cancer patients may no longer be able to attend school, hold a job, or have to adapt to a completely new lifestyle after their diagnosis.

The Cancer Survivor Scholarship is intended to help fight this disease by contributing to the education of those individuals who have been impacted by it and are using that experience as their motivation to pursue a career that aims to eradicate cancer. Whether you have been diagnosed with cancer yourself or you were directly impacted by the cancer diagnosis and battle of a family member or close friend, this inspiring story of perseverance can help generate awareness and encourage others to get involved in the fight against cancer. The attorneys at Hawkins Spizman hope that this scholarship will serve as a beacon of hope for cancer survivors and their families while contributing to the educational goals of students interested in cancer research and fighting this disease. One student will be selected to receive this $1,000 award.


Eligibility for this scholarship requires that the applicant be enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or law program at a college or university in the United States. Applicants can be a GED holder planning to attend college during the upcoming semester. The applicant should also be in good academic standing with a GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.


To apply for this scholarship, please submit:

A) A current resume,

B) A school transcript, and

C) An essay of 500-1,000 words discussing the impact that a cancer diagnosis and subsequent battle had on you
