Patient Advocate Foundation is a national non-profit organization that seeks to safeguard patients through effective mediation assuring access to care, maintenance of employment and preservation of their financial stability relative to their diagnosis of life threatening or debilitating diseases. The purpose of our scholarships are to provide support to individuals, under the age of 25, that are or have been diagnosed with cancer or a critical or life threatening disease.
Program Description
During PAF's daily interactions with patients, PAF staff often interface with patients who either themselves or a loved one has experienced the impact of a chronic illness or life threatening disease on one's post-secondary education. In 2000, Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board, Nancy Davenport-Ennis established the Scholarship for Survivors program to honor these individuals by offering educational scholarships to individuals who have suffered (or are suffering) a life threatening disease or chronic condition. These students have, despite their disease/condition, excelled academically, served the community, and desire to pursue a secondary education.

To date, PAF (along with other gracious funders) has awarded 83 scholarships totaling over $506,000; of the 59 students, 44 have achieved fully degreed graduation and 12 are still pursuing their course of study.

Scholarship for Survivors annually awards twelve students with $3000 academic scholarships.
