  • In recognition of Gabriela Blanco's love of learning as well as her achievements in academic excellence in school, Sofia's Hope is proud to announce the following annual scholarship opportunities for siblings of childhood cancer survivors.

    Gabriela's sister, Sofia did not have the chance to graduate high school or attend college.

As such, Sofia's Hope objective is to formally recognize that siblings are survivors of childhood cancer, too. Siblings can apply to receive one of two (2) scholarships toward their college education. Recipients of the Inaugural Gabriela Blanco Scholarships will receive a $2,000 allowance for tuition/room and board, plus a laptop or tablet (first-time awardees only).
