Abstract (summary)
This study identified scholarships available to adolescent, young adult cancer survivors who are either starting post secondary or are continuing their education at a post secondary institution in Alberta. Websites for six universities in Alberta were explored along with the Kids with Cancer Society's site for potential resources. Results revealed seven cancer-survivor based scholarships as well as another eighteen potentially applicable scholarships based on disability, GPA, financial need, community involvement or a combination of these factors.
