If you or a loved one has been personally affected by pancreatic cancer and is getting ready for college or technical school, please check out our scholarship! We want to help you further your education and to maybe ease the burden pancreatic cancer has on your life.

At Purple Pansies, we have felt the effects of pancreatic cancer on a personal level, and we understand the devastating affect it can have on the entire family unit. Our hope is that the Purple Pansies Scholarship will both raise awareness and attention to those fighting against the disease, as well as ease the financial burden of college for these families affected.


  1. You have lost an immediate family member (parent or guardian) to pancreatic cancer, or you, or a parent, guardian, grandparent, or immediate family member has survived or is currently fighting pancreatic cancer.
  2. You are a high school senior that has been accepted into an accredited college, university or vocational school or someone who is already enrolled in one of these schools.
  3. You have a 3.0 GPA or higher.
