The Conquer Cancer Foundation Patient Advocate Scholarship Program provides scholarships for patient advocates to attend ASCO-sponsored Symposia and the ASCO Annual Meeting to learn of important advances in their areas of interest. Scholarships help cover travel, hotel, and registration expenses and are based primarily on financial need, advocacy experience, and current advocacy activities and involvement.

ASCO-sponsored Symposia and the ASCO Annual Meeting give patient advocacy organizations an opportunity to promote their programs, services, and resources to the professional oncology community. These meetings also offer a venue where advocates can meet, interact, and exchange information. Advocates are encouraged to return to their organizations and their communities to share what they have learned and participate in various consumer advocacy opportunities, lending a crucial perspective and making a difference in the cancer community.
