The successful candidate must have someone within his or her immediate household with cancer, must demonstrate a financial need, and be accepted into a college or trade school. Scholarship winners must then prove completion of one year of the college or trade school of their choice.
Since 1995, H.O.P.E. has awarded over 70 annual scholarships to high school seniors pursuing a post- secondary education. Candidates not only demonstrate exemplary academic and extracurricular talent, but continue to do so through the lingering effects of their families’ cancer journey.
