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, and gym memberships.
**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: free of cancer, one year following the completion of planned therapy, OR in remission on maintenance therapy. Our two-part application process begins on May 27th. Anyone interested in applying must first submit Part I of the application (which will be posted on our website). After a review period, selected applicants will then be invited to submit Part II. Those applicants will be notified in October as to whether they have received a grant. For the first time this year, we will also be offering a second grant cycle, beginning in January.
How to Apply:
The link to the application will be posted on our website beginning on May 27, 2015.
