THE CURE - CANCER SUPPORT SCHOLARSHIP: EDUCATION ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER

The CURE – Cancer Support Scholarship has been created by the Lep Foundation for Youth Education.

 

CURE Magazine is the indispensable guide to every stage of the cancer experience combining science and humanity to make cancer understandable. The Lep Foundation and CURE Media Group work in a collaborative effort to support students affected by cancer and have shown the courage and determination to finish their college education despite their setbacks. This scholarship will help to deter the costs of college for these individuals who may not have the resources due to overwhelming medical costs.

 

The scholarship is designated for students who were diagnosed with cancer and whose disease and related treatments placed a significant financial burden on them and their families. The amount of the scholarship is $5,000.
