- Scholarship Description
Twisted Pink, along with the family and closest friends of Jennifer Alderman, will honor her legacy and recognize her lifelong dream of being a constant and present figure in her children’s life with the annual Jennifer Casey Alderman Legacy Scholarship Award. This annual award will provide one young adult with a $10,000 scholarship to seek a higher education. Scholarship recipients are eligible to receive $2,500 annually throughout their undergraduate career. Award recipients must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher to maintain annual eligibility. Any funds in excess will support research for metastatic breast cancer in Jennifer’s memory. We will strive to find and support research on leptomeningeal disease, which is ultimately what took Jennifer’s life. The annual scholarship award will be presented each year on May 28th, the date that Jennifer entered eternal life.
Twisted Pink will consider nominations from a young adult who has lost a parent to metastatic breast cancer or has financial hardship due to a parent currently living with metastatic breast cancer and wishes to seek a higher education as a post high school graduate. At this time scholarship applications will be considered from individuals living in IN, KY, OH or TN. To apply for the Jennifer Casey Alderman Legacy Scholarship, please submit a written essay about the subject of your choice, no more than five pages in length. Applicant should include proof of nominee qualifications either in the form of an obituary, copy of death certificate or a signed letter from the parents’ medical oncologist.
