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.
