Candice's Sickle Cell Disease Scholarship
Candice's Sickle Cell Fund, Inc. has been established to raise awareness among the public concerning sickle cell disease. Our goal is to help alleviate the financial pressures of college-bound students in the Tri-State Area (NY/NJ/CT)with sickle cell disease by providing three scholarships annually in the amount of $1500 ($750 presented in September, and $750 presented in January). These scholarships are awarded to assist scholarship recipients with their college education. In order to receive this scholarship, applicants are required to submit a 250 word essay which should detail how the disease has affected his/her life and the pursuit of an education; the applicant's educational goals and plans to achieve them; and describe persons in the applicant's life who has been instrumental in helping the applicant to persevere. The recipient must complete all high school credits by June, if applicable. Additionally, the recipient must be present at the Scholarship Luncheon in order to receive the award.
The completed essay should be typewritten in double-spaced format and postmarked no later than May 6th. Please submit to:
