Sean Silver Memorial Scholarship Award

Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults

The Sean Silver Memorial Scholarship Award is available to applicants who are degree seeking United States citizens, age 15-30 at the time of application. Applicants must be currently undergoing active treatment for cancer and reside in the Chicago, IL area.

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.
