The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
Some of the scholarships available are national scholarships for students whose parents have cancer. They include the Marilyn Yetso Memorial Scholarship, the Vera Yip Memorial Scholarship, and the Bernice McNamara Memorial Scholarship. In addition, the Sean Silver Memorial Scholarship Award is available to students who are currently being treated for cancer.
Other scholarships are open to students who live in specific areas, such as the Evan Nicholson Memorial Scholarship and the Doug Parker Memorial Scholarship for students who reside in Howard County, Maryland. There are also scholarships established at specific schools such as University of Virginia and the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
All scholarships are related to students whose lives or families have been affected by cancer. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens and plan to attend an accredited college or university in the U.S. Students can be in college either part-time, full-time or even online. They must complete an essay describing how they have used their experience to help others, and they must commit to 40 hours of community service.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,500.
