The mission of the Paul Bernot Memorial Foundation Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a student with a passion for fitness/athletics who is a legal resident of the United States of America, is pursuing post-high school education, and who is currently or has previously been diagnosed/treated for cancer. To be eligible, applicants must: have a 3.0 GPA; be accepted and enrolled as a student in at least 2 classes (typically 6 credit hours) at an accredited college, university, or trade school in the United States for the upcoming Fall; and complete an essay (up to 500 words): “How I will represent and
carry out the mission of the Foundation: to empower athletes impacted by cancer to pursue their passions.”
No one expects an athlete to get cancer - let alone to die young. The Paul Bernot Memorial Foundation was created in memory of a courageous young athlete who died from colorectal cancer at age 33. In honor of Paul’s memory, and for athletes who are impacted by cancer, we are your team on the sidelines. The Paul Bernot Memorial Foundation exists to empower athletes with cancer to pursue their passions.
