SCHOLARSHIPS

The financial costs a family may inherit as a result of caring for a mother with stage 4 cancer, and then closing the chapters of her life, may impact her daughter's ability to pursue post-secondary opportunities. To off-set a small amount of the financial burden, Harriett’s Daughters will award educational scholarships to those young women -- who plan to go to college in the 2022-2023 academic school year.

To be eligible for a Harriett's Daughters Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen

  • Reside in the Greater Atlanta area

  • Be a young woman in her senior of high school 

  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.00 scale

  • Have a mother who has stage 4 cancer, or a mother who has died from cancer

In addition to the general eligibility requirements, applicants will be asked to provide the following:

  • Two letters of recommendation (both letters must be written on official letterhead and signed) 

  • An essay/personal statement 

  • A one-minute video introduction 

  • Official academic transcript 

Application Deadline: May 2, 2022, 11:59 p.m. EST.

We understand that figuring out how to pay for post-secondary education can be overwhelming.
