Michael F. Contestabile Memorial Fund
Submission deadline is ongoing
The Michael F. Contestabile Memorial Scholarship (MFC Memorial Scholarship) presented by the Pancreatic Cancer Association of WNY is a one-time grant of $2,500.00 to be awarded annually. It is open to elementary school students entering high school, high school and college students who have been affected by pancreatic cancer due to a family member's diagnosis or have suffered the loss (death) of a family member due to pancreatic cancer. Scholarship is awarded to a student(s) annually and does not discriminate by ethnicity, race, religion, or gender.
The MFC Memorial Scholarship was created by Michael's three children (Savannah, Michela, and Michael) to honor his memory. They wanted to help other families who have lost a parent to pancreatic cancer by offering financial assistance for college. It is funded in part through proceeds from the annual PCAWNY Golf Tournament held in memory of Michael F. Contestabile.
