Scholarship title: Ryan Mullaly Second Chance Fund Scholarship

Applicable Majors: All Fields of Study

The Ryan Mullaly Second Chance Fund is a non-profit corporation offering scholarship assistance to young people who are fighting cancer. We are looking for young men and women whose high school years were disrupted by cancer and whose ability to qualify for most scholarships was precluded by the extensive absenteeism and physical disabilities which result from chemotherapy and radiation. The financial impact on families dealing with cancer is significant. In addition to many expenses not covered by health insurance, families often experience a substantial loss in income as one parent must stop working to care for the ill child. There are enormous transportation and meal expenses as the family tries to keep up with doctor and hospital visits and child care for other children at home. Any savings the family might have for college is rapidly used up in an effort to keep up with mounting bills. All of this is in addition to the terrible stress, sadness and worry that each family member is enduring through no fault of their own.

To be eligible, an applicant must satisfy the below requirements in full:

  • You are a citizen or permanent resident of the United States;
  • You were diagnosed with lymphoma (any type) or a recurrence of lymphoma between age 13 and graduation from high school;
  • You were under active treatment for lymphoma while in high school, resulting in a substantial impact on your ability to attend class, take the SAT's, etc.;
  • You have a treatment history which includes chemotherapy and/or radiation;
  • You are currently a high school senior graduating in 2013;
  • You have not previously been awarded a scholarship from our Fund; AND
  • You will be pursuing an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at an accredited 2 year or 4 year college OR you will be enrolled in an accredited post-secondary vocational or trade program which will culminate in certification.
