Here is information about a wonderful scholarship provided by SuperSibs. If you qualify, then it’s important to apply by January 25.
The SuperSibs award is open to seniors in high school who are residents of the USA, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Beyond that, students must have achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) or 2.5 or higher (on a 5.0 scale).
Very importantly, to meet elibility requirements, applicants must be a sibling of a child who has or has had cancer.
An applicant who has a brother or sister who has cancer, but is no longer in treatment, is also eligible to apply as long as he/she was living in the same household and between the ages of 4 and 18 when his/her sibling was diagnosed and treated.
Half-brothers/sisters and step-brothers/sisters are eligible to apply so long as they are living in the same house as a child who has cancer.
The award amount is $1,000 annually (non-renewable), and there are 10 annual awards. There are other requirements, too, which can be seen on the SuperSibs website.
