Scholarship Description: Thank you for your interest in the Susan G. Komen for the Cure College Scholarship Program. In 2001, Komen established the college scholarship program to help students who would find attending college to be a significant financial burden due to the loss of a parent or guardian to breast cancer or their own breast cancer diagnosis at age 25 or younger. The program has evolved into a dynamic partnership between Komen and students who serve in their communities, sharing Komen’s message of breast cancer awareness and raising funds while pursuing their baccalaureate degrees. The award is a generous scholarship of $10,000 a year for up to four years to attend a state university in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Scholarship recipients are selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, financial need and demonstrated leadership potential.
