College scholarships are available. Completed applications are due by Friday, March 30th, 2012 5:00pm EST.

From the UCF Flyer:
The Ulman Cancer Fund's National College Scholarship Program was created in 1999 to support the financial needs of college students whose lives have been impacted by cancer.  Past recipients have devoted time and effort to raising awareness of young adult cancer on campuses nationwide, and gone on to pursue careers in nursing, research, and public affairs.  Each year, recipients are asked to spend time supporting the UCF's efforts in their communities and joining the fight against cancer.
Scholarships are available for individuals who fall into the following categories:
• Young adult cancer survivors
• Young adults affected by cancer through the diagnosis of a parent or sibling 
• Young adults in active cancer treatment
