Description

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Scholarship for Cancer Survivors program was created to assist cancer survivors who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships of up to $10,000 will be awarded to up to 25 qualified students. Applicants must be cancer survivors (diagnosed by a physician as having treatment of cancer and survived), age 25 and under, who are high school seniors or graduates or postsecondary undergraduates. Qualified applicants must plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire 2018-19 academic year. They must have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent). Scholarships will be awarded based on applicants' academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, personal impact statement and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
