The Dear Jack Scholarship is provided annually by Cancer for College, and seeks to provide financial assistance to students in the U.S. who have been diagnosed with cancer. Applicants must be majoring in music and must demonstrate both high academic achievement and unmet financial need. Cancer for College has worked since 1993 to contribute inspiration, hope, and financial assistance to students studying in the U.S. who have been personally impacted by a diagnosis of cancer.
