In recognition of Sofia and her sister, Gabriela's love of learning as well as their achievements in academic excellence in school, Sofia's Hope is proud to offer the following annual college scholarship opportunities for both childhood cancer survivors and their siblings.
Sofia did not have the chance to graduate high school or attend college so through these college scholarships Sofia's Hope aspires to help make that dream a reality for other childhood cancer patients/survivors/warriors and their siblings. The 2022-2023 application cycle will open on January 1, 2022. Please subscribe to our mailing list using form below if you want to receive updates on applications and deadlines.
