Scholarship Time


Completing the applications over a number of weeks can lead to big benefits over the long term. If you are awarded a scholarship, not only will you have extra funding to support your education, but you will also have another achievement to list on your resume.

Each scholarship application process is different and deadlines vary, but here are a few things to make sure you include in your application essay/letter:

  • How this money will be helpful (e.g., you will be able to focus on your studies versus working a part-time job)
  • Why you have chosen to study what you have applied for – and do include a description of your cancer journey if your experience with childhood cancer affected this decision
  • How appreciative you are to be considered and how proud you will be to be a recipient if you are successful

If you have any questions about your applications contact your SAVTI Counsellor!
