The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults established the Marilyn Yetso Memorial Scholarship to support the financial needs of a college student who has lost a parent to cancer or has a parent with cancer and who displays financial need. This competitive award seeks to honor the spirit, energy, and determination that Marilyn displayed during her life, her love for her family and friends, and her courageous battle with colon cancer. At the time of her passing in March 2000, Marilyn was a wife, a dedicated mother to five children and an unconditional friend to many. Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 39 during their own diagnosis/treatment or during the diagnosis/treatment of their parent or sibling or spouse. Scholarship winners are awarded a total of $2500 over two academic semesters. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the scholarship recipient's school. Many scholarships offered share similar applicant criteria. Applicants only need to submit one application, which will be considered for any and all scholarships the student is eligible for.
