27 Oct Icing On The Ring Triumph Over Breast Cancer Scholarship
This $1,000 scholarship was created to assist one achievement-oriented student who is struggling with or has survived breast cancer.
Icing On The Ring has witnessed the devastating effects of breast cancer and its ability to completely overturn a life. That is especially true when an individual is working hard to put themselves through school. Although all college students face difficult obstacles, Icing On The Ring believes that a disease like cancer should not be allowed to derail an aspiring student’s dream. Their intention is to offset the financial burden to a student who is continuing to study despite their encounter with breast cancer.
As a jeweler specializing in engagement rings and wedding rings, Icing On The Ring has been honored to have been included in so many individuals’ happiest moments. We know that graduating college, starting a career and achieving success are important milestones just like engagement and marriage, and they want to help more people reach them.
The Triumph Over Breast Cancer Scholarship is open to any student who is currently fighting breast cancer, in remission or has beaten breast cancer. Additionally, the student must either:
- Be currently enrolled at an accredited university, or
- Have been accepted to an accredited university
We warmly invite all eligible candidates to apply and we look forward to bestowing this scholarship.
