Description of Grant

The Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate has partnered with the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center (NEOAHEC) to offer grants up to $1,000 to high school students interested in conducting breast health education projects. NEOAHEC will help support the mentor relationship and inform high schools about this exciting new program. They could be used for Future Health Professionals of Oregon projects or a senior project. The Komen Affiliate will fundFOUR grants, up to $1,000 each, to high school students that focuses on breast health education or a celebration of survivors. This is a pilot project this year to see if this topic is of interest to high school students, especially those interested in health careers.

Eligibility and Restrictions
