Each year Side-Out offers 19 scholarships worth a total of $20,000. Once an applicant completes the requirements to become a Side-Out ambassador, they only have two additional steps to be eligible for a SOAP scholarship! The scholarship denominations for college education expenses are as follows: $500, $1,000 and $2,500.
Note: The below information is from 2014. Updated application details will be provided in 2015.
SOAP scholarship applicants must:
*In certain instances, applicants may not have access to direct contact with workers in the medical and research fields. If this is the case, they may participate in online breast cancer workshops through organizations such as CancerCare.
The SOAP awards are offered in various nominations: $500, $1,000 and $2,500. The review board judges each application based on the review criteria included in the checklist of tasks (page 2). They will decide the amount a winner will earn. Winners will be notified via e-mail by Friday, December 19th.
Scholarships will be sent directly to the student’s college to be applied toward his/her tuition costs. Winners in high school should notify Side-Out as soon as they commit to a college/university. A staff member will contact winners via e-mail to let them know when the scholarship was mailed.
