The SAMFund’s 2015 Part I application is now closed.

Thanks for your interest. Unfortunately, The SAMFund is no longer accepting applications. All Part I applicants will be notified by July 17th, 2015 whether they have been selected to complete Part II of the application. Our next grant cycle will open in January 2016.

The SAMFund Grants:
The SAMFund proudly provides financial assistance to young adults as they move forward with their lives after cancer. With our support, survivors are empowered to achieve their educational, professional and personal goals. Since 2005, we have awarded over $1,350,000 to recipients across the country. Click here to read recipient stories and updates.

Grants provided by The SAMFund cover a wide range of post-treatment financial needs, including (but not limited to): current and residual medical bills, car and health insurance premiums, rent, continuing education and loans, family-building expenses, gym memberships and transportation costs.

**Please note that The SAMFund is no longer awarding scholarships for undergraduate tuition. However, undergrads are welcome to apply for grants for other expenses (e.g., medical bills, school books, computers, etc). If you are looking for assistance with undergrad tuition, please view and download our resource list here:

The SAMFund Application Process:
Applicants must be between the ages of 21 and 39, residents of the United States, and either finished with treatment with no evidence of disease, or one year following the completion of planned therapy, or in remission on maintenance therapy. Our two-part application process takes place in the late spring, and now also in the early winter. Anyone interested in applying must first submit Part I of the application. After a review period, selected applicants will then be invited to submit Part II. Those applicants will be notified in a couple of months as to whether they have received a grant.

How to Apply:
The link to the next application will be posted on our website beginning January 2016.
