Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Scholarship Program
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation has expanded its scholarship program with the addition of the multiyear Galaxy Scholarship.
The new multiyear Galaxy Scholarship award complements the one-year award provided by the original PBTF scholarship program launched in 2002. This year we have also introduced an online-only application format for both awards.
Our scholarship program eases the financial hardships of a childhood brain tumor diagnosis and helps survivors reach their academic goals. Scholarships are supported in part by the Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund.
The Galaxy Scholarship is designed for graduating high school seniors or high school graduates. The program provides a one-time scholarship of $3,000 to students pursuing an associate’s degree in up to two years, or $6,000 to students pursuing an undergraduate degree in up to four years.
Awards are divided into payments of $1,500 per academic year. Award recipients will be required to participant annually in the PBTF’s volunteer program.
Students enrolled in college are not eligible to apply for the Galaxy Scholarship.
One-year scholarship for enrolled college students
The PBTF also provides a one-year scholarship of $1,000 to brain tumor survivors who are already in college. Graduating high school seniors or high school graduates are not eligible to apply for the one-year scholarship.
Eligibility requirements for scholarship applicants
Diagnosed at or before age 19 with a primary malignant or non-malignant central nervous system brain and/or spinal cord tumor, as identified by the World Health Organization.
Multiyear Galaxy scholarship: college-bound high school senior or high school graduate planning to attend an accredited community college or undergraduate school.
One-year scholarship: college students attending an accredited community college or undergraduate school.
Complete the online application (hard copies will not be accepted; the same online application is used for both college scholarship programs).
