Lisa Higgins-Hussman Foundation Scholarship
Ulman Cancer Fund for Young AdultsThis scholarship is for permanent residents of Maryland, Washington, DC., and Virginia. To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must be young adult cancer survivors or have been diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 39; OR young adults who lost a parent/guardian to cancer; OR have a parent/guardian diagnosed or undergoing treatment for cancer; OR have a sibling diagnosed or undergoing treatment; OR have lost a sibling due to cancer. Applicants must have been at least 15 years old when parent or sibling was diagnosed. Applicants must be degree-seeking, demonstrate leadership abilities and commitment to their community, and exhibit financial need. Scholarship recipients must agree to complete 40 hours of community service. *After more than two decades of awarding funds to young adults impacted by cancer for their higher education, the Ulman Foundation has decided to discontinue its scholarship program. In our consistent pursuit to meet the most urgent needs of the community we serve, we have determined that focusing the funds and time at our disposal on our programs which address the pressing practical and psychosocial needs of current patients and new survivors best aligns with our mission and current capabilities. Please join us in honoring the hundreds of students who have used their awards to increase their knowledge after living with cancer or supporting a loved one living with cancer, and to thank the many donors who have supported their learning and growth.* Sign Up to Start Applying
