A battle with pediatric cancer is often financially devastating to a family. With this reality in mind, Smile-A-Mile created a scholarship program in 1999 to assist families in sending their child to college, university, or trade school. Scholarship recipients must show academic progress as well as continue to give back to the organization by volunteering at fundraising events. Since 1999, Smile-A-Mile has provided more than $1,000,000 in scholarships.
Smile-A-Mile Scholars currently represent the following colleges/universities:
- Auburn University
- Baylor University
- Davidson College
- Fordham University
- Jacksonville State University
- Samford University
- Wallace Community College
- University of Alabama
- University of Alabama at Birmingham
- University of Alabama in Huntsville
- University of Montevallo
All patients actively involved in our programming are eligible to apply for our scholarships on an annual basis. Whether you have decided to attend a university, community college or trade school, Smile-A-Mile wants to help!
If you are interested in applying for a Smile-A-Mile scholarship, please contact us to ensure you are on the mailing list. The annual application is available mid-January and due mid-March.
