IBCAT is currently accepting applications for the 2012 Nancy Jaynes Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship of up to $1,500 for college or post-secondary technical schooling is awarded to an Indiana High School Senior(s) whose parent is battling breast cancer or who has lost a parent to breast cancer.
The Nancy Jaynes Memorial Scholarship Award is named in honor of the founder of the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust (IBCAT), Nancy Jaynes. Nancy lost her battle with breast cancer in March 2008. A Plymouth (Indiana) High School Family and Consumer Sciences teacher, Nancy envisioned the breast cancer license plate to be a traveling billboard and reminder about the importance of early detection and prevention of breast cancer.
The application deadline is February 11, 2012.
