Continuing education can be expensive! But many organizations and foundations give scholarships to students in treatment and recovery for cancer and other blood disorders.
Cancer-specific scholarshiplistings include:
Finaid.org - Information about scholarships, including ones specifically for cancer patients, cancer survivors, children of a patient or survivor, and others touched by cancer or pursuing a career in cancer treatment.
Don’t forget non-cancer related scholarships. Many scholarships out there can help reduce the cost of school. Resources include:
FinAid.org - A broad guide to student financial aid.
FAFSA.gov - Free Application for Federal Student Aid, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education.
Please note that scholarship availability can change at the discretion of each organization and listing. Please double check with these organizations before finalizing your educational plan. Additionally, please contact our School Program if you have any questions or additional leads for scholarship information. We are always on the look out for additional scholarship resources!
