Beyond the Cure Ambassador Scholarship Program
The Beyond the Cure Ambassador Scholarship Program awards college scholarships to childhood cancer survivors who have demonstrated the ability to overcome the difficult challenges of cancer with determination and motivation. Fifty-eight college scholarships are awarded each year.
The 2020-2021 application is now available. Due to the current pandemic crisis, we are extending the application deadline to April 30, 2020. Completed applications must be postmarked by April 30th.
Unofficial transcripts will be accepted at this time but we may ask for official transcripts at a later date. In addition, unofficial transcripts, letters of recommendation and the medical professional letter can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30, 2020.
Applicants must be:
- A childhood cancer survivor under the age of 25 and diagnosed before the age of 18 with cancer or a high grade or anaplastic brain tumor
- A citizen of the United States living within the country and attending school in the U.S.
- Accepted into a post-secondary school in the Fall 2019
The NCCS is deeply grateful to The Centene Charitable Foundation and the Engelhardt Family Foundation for their generous support of the program.
