The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's scholarship program empowers brain tumor survivors to reach their career goals.

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's college scholarship program eases the financial hardships of a childhood brain tumor diagnosis and helps survivors thrive by empowering them to reach their career goals. Since 2001, the PBTF has awarded more than 1,500 college scholarships to brain tumor survivors totaling $1.7 million.

2017 Scholarship Program
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation has awarded 53 college scholarships to brain tumor survivors for the 2017 academic year. The recipients include rising first-year students and current college students.

The 2017 application is closed. Next year's application will be available in January 2018.
