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 $900,000 to recipients across the country. Click here to read recipient stories and updates.
**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.
Eligibility (please note that there are changes from last year!)
Applicants must be between the ages of 17 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. If you have questions about whether or not you are eligible, please email email@example.com.
*We have expanded our age range this year to 17-39. Next year, all eligible applicants must be between 21 and 39.
