In 2004, the Awareness Garden Scholarship Program was established to help students whose lives have been impacted by cancer or who plan to work in a cancer related field to pursue their educational goals. Over the past seven years over $83,450 has been awarded to deserving individuals who lives have been affected by cancer. Applicants are evaluated on community activities, letters of recommendation, and personal essays in which they reveal how their lives and goals have been affected by cancer. The Awareness Garden Scholarship Committee members then conduct personal interviews with finalists. Their task is challenging as there are many worthy candidates.
On May 21, 2017 the Awareness Garden Foundation awarded our 2017 scholarships to three very deserving students.
Meredith Buckley of New Covenant Schools
Carter Leverette of E.C. Glass High School
Conner McClain of E.C. Glass High School
Alexandra (Lexi) Sale of Amherst County High School
