Blessings and OpportunitiesScholarships



High School Scholarships

Pink ImpACT notifies each high school counselor of the available scholarship each year. Once the students apply, Pink ImpACT selects scholarship recipient(s) based on their 200 word essay on How Breast Cancer Has Affected Their Life. Once selected, each counselor is notified of the winner and Pink ImpACT presents the awardee $1,000 and a scholarship certificate at the high school awards ceremony. The scholarship awarded can go toward a degree plan or a vocational college.

Endowed Scholarships

An endowed scholarship a major gift to a college used to fund scholarships. This fund is meant to be permanent, so the money donated is never actually spent. Instead, investment income earned from the endowment fund is used to fund the scholarship for years to come. Pink ImpACT’s endowed scholarships are available at both Grayson College & Paris Junior College. To apply, you must go through each college and the recipient is chosen by the college foundation.

  • Passionate About Survivors

    You are considered a survivor the day you are diagnosed with breast cancer. Survivorship actually lasts longer than going through treatment. It is your “new normal.” You have a new way of life, and new, different issues will continue to arise.

  • Implementing our Mission Statement

    Pink ImpACT is a faith based organization that helps survivors understand their new “normal” life through mentorship and scholarships. There are about 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S., including women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.

  • Volunteering

    Pink ImpACT is passionate about survivorship and implements scholarships for breast cancer survivors’ dependents/caregivers. Sherry (Pink ImpAct’s founder) is certified through Texas Tech in the Change Cycle™ for breast cancer survivors and their caregivers, teaching them effective coping and life skills.

Did you know that we are on our THIRD year of awarding multiple renewable $1000 scholarships to college-bound students? 📚📝🎓 This is a mission that is near and dear to our founder's heart, because she knew all too well the financial strain of college expenses when her daughter graduated high school shortly after her own breast cancer diagnosis.

So, how does someone receive a scholarship?⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

In order to apply, you must either be a breast cancer survivor or be a dependent of a breast cancer survivor, and live in the greater North Texas area!

The application process includes filling out a form on our website (www.pinkimpact.pink) and submitting an essay about how breast cancer has impacted the applicant's life, and specifically, their educational goals! Application deadline is April 30th!

So, we have a special favor to ask YOU!
🤍 Do you know someone who is college-bound in fall semester of 2020?
🤍 Are they themselves a breast cancer survivor or have someone very close to them who is?

If the answer to both those questions is "yes", then what are you waiting for?!? Please SHARE this opportunity with them! Even if you don't personally know someone, sharing this post on Facebook would be very helpful in getting the word out!

We have A LOT of scholarships to give away this year and are hoping to bless as many students as possible, so we appreciate you spreading the word!

P.S. for those who are looking 🤔 at this collage of past scholarship recipients ---
we promise this isn't a female-only opportunity... we just need some males to apply, too! C'mon, gentlemen! 😄
