I am a single mother, and I am pursuing a Degree in Nursing. I want to become a nurse researcher in Cancer. However, it is so challenging for me to work full time and attend school full time. This scholarship might help me work part-time and focus on my studies.

I'm a 29 year old male pursuing a career in Nursing. I really have a interest in cancer and would love to study everything there is to know so I can help save lives, one person at a time.

I am a 60 year old Registered Medical Assistant. I work in Surgical Oncology and I was enrolled in college to obtain my RN/BSN when I was told that I could not complete my degree because I had hit my financial aid ceiling. I am truly committed to becoming a nurse in the field of oncology because I am committed to this. I love working in that field and I know it takes a very special kind of person to be able to handle the highs and low it brings. Please help me to be able to complete my degree so that I can continue to help . This scholarship can really make a difference not only in my life but in the lives of countless others I can help. I see the nurses on the front lines of the Pandemic and I want to do my part helping on the front lines as well. I know that I can be a great contribution in the fight against this horrific invisible enemy we now face. Thank you......
