Amped 4-A-Cure, Inc.'s Briana Watts Scholarship Fund has been selected to compete in the Pepsi Refresh Project for a grant of $250,000. Online and text voting began on Monday January 3 and will continue through January 31. The Pepsi Refresh Project awards grant money to individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations with innovative ideas to better the community. Only 1000 applications are accepted each month, and winners are based on the number of votes received.
The Briana Watts Scholarship Fund is named after Briana Watts who lost her battle with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, on Feb. 11, 2010 at the tender age of fifteen. This scholarship fund will provide financial support to students fighting the war on cancer who choose Oncology as their field of study. Amped 4-A-Cure, Inc. plans to award ten deserving students each with a $20,000 Scholarship for their dedication to cancer patient care and research in finding a cure. One of the scholarships will always be awarded to a resident of North Carolina, Briana's home state. We want to encourage students to specialize in cancer research to help rid the world of this disease once and for all. Winning the $250,000 grant will allow A4AC to assist individuals who are dedicating their lives to helping those in need both now and for generations to come.
