The Komen College Scholarship Award helps students cover the costs of tuition, books, fees and on-campus room and board. The scholarship is specifically intended to help those qualified students who would otherwise find attending college to be a significant financial burden, due to the loss of a parent to breast cancer.

Komen's scholarship recipients are selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, financial need and demonstrated leadership potential.

"Breast cancer is a disease that encompasses the entire family. Losing a parent to breast cancer can significantly impact a student's ability to continue, or even begin, a college career. This scholarship program is a way to help qualified students to realize their dreams of higher education," said Mollie Williams, director, community health programs at Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Basic information about the Komen College Scholarship Award program and online applications can be found at http://www.komen.org/grants under Awards and Scholarships. Specific questions can be directed to Scholarship Program Administrators, Inc. (SPA) at 615-320-3149 or you can email them directly at info@spaprog.com.

Students must complete the application form, provide all needed documentation and submit their application packets to SPA. All completed application materials must be received at SPA no later than Feb. 1, 2008 as a condition of being chosen for a scholarship.

A total of seven scholarships will be awarded. Komen for the Cure will announce the scholarship award recipients March 31, 2008.
