2017 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 $10,000 scholarship 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.
