Mari Paz Jiménez Casado Foundation Scholarship

The Fundación Mari Paz Jimenez Casado (FMPJC) is an independent non for profit organization founded in 2013. Its mission is to help people and groups in need, mainly due to cancer – sarcoma – and to contribute to promote education and clinical research.

Mari Paz was one of those persons that found themselves on a radical turn of events. Therefore she had to start a hard, unfair and inhuman fight for nine years. During that time she worked restlessly, not only trying to beat cancer, but also trying to ease the suffering of others that, like her, were affected by the consequences of this disease. The Foundation is aimed to help and give acknowledgement to a uncommon disease, joining efforts to beat the illness and to try to achieve a cure for cancer and specially sarcoma.

For this purpose, the Foundation calls annually for several scholarship applications. Winners of scholarships in 2021:
