Candice's Sickle Cell Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by Candice's Sickle Cell Fund
Since the inception of this organization we have been providing three or more scholarships each year to students with sickle cell disease who are pursuing higher education.
To date we have given over $100,000 in scholarships to new and past recipients.
Each applicant must submit two reference letters in a sealed envelope to be considered for scholarship.
Each applicant must submit a 250-word essay typewritten in double-spaced format to include how the Sickle Cell Disease has affected their life and education. Each applicant should also include what their educational goals are and how they expect to achieve them , in addition, what person has been instrumental in their lives to help them persevere.
