The Conquer Cancer Patient Advocate Scholarship Program

Applications for the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting Patient Advocate Scholarship Program will open on Monday, March 4, 2019 at 12pm EST and will close Friday, March 15, 2019 at 12pm EST.

The Conquer Cancer 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. It is our hope that scholarship recipients will be motivated to seek out and participate in consumer advocacy opportunities, lending a crucial perspective and making a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer.
