CancerCon Live 2022
The CancerCon Live 2022 Scholarship Program was created to further Stupid Cancer’s mission of ending isolation and promoting diversity within the CancerCon community. This year, we are offering a limited amount of need-based scholarships to AYA patients and survivors.
There are four types of scholarships available: Attendance, Hotel, Transportation & Full.
- Attendance Scholarship: free registration
- Hotel Scholarship: free registration, hotel accommodations for three nights
- Transportation Scholarship: free registration, reimbursed mileage or roundtrip airfare to Minneapolis
- Full Scholarship: free registration, hotel accommodations for three nights, reimbursed mileage or roundtrip airfare to Minneapolis
To be eligible, applicants must meet the following requirement criteria:
- Cancer Survivor or Patient
- Between the ages of 15-39
- Has not attended a CancerCon Live event
- Would be unable to attend without financial assistance
- U.S. resident
- Vaccinated for COVID-19 (or able to provide documentation of medical or religious exemption)
If you plan to apply for a scholarship, please DO NOT REGISTER for CancerCon. Any scholarship applicants that register for the conference will be disqualified from consideration. (If not selected, you will still be able to register at the discounted Early Bird registration rate).
Applications are due April 20, 2022 and will be awarded by May 2, 2022. A review committee will read and discuss every application submitted. Decisions will be based on available funds and number of scholarships requested. If additional funds become available after decisions are made, the review committee will revisit the applicant pool and a second round of scholarships may be awarded. You may be contacted for additional information after your application has been received.
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Scholarship Application”
NOTE: Stupid Cancer is unable to honor scholarships that were awarded for CancerCon 2020, however we encourage those recipients to reapply.
