Expect Miracles Foundation Scholarship

Expect Miracles Foundation established its college scholarship program to help students who would find attending college to be a significant financial burden due to their history/current diagnosis with cancer. Given in memory of Paula J. Pearlstein, whose courage and energy were instrumental to the advancement of our mission in the early years, the scholarship, which may be up to $20,000 or of a lower increment, is intended to help an individual who has been impacted by cancer – either in treatment or remission – to attend a 4-year college or university in pursuit of a degree. Expect Miracles Foundation will send the scholarship checks directly to the Bursar’s office of the recipient’s college or university to be credited towards the recipient’s tuition.
