Start Seeing Pink

The Start Seeing Pink committee would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to everyone who made this year's fundraising and awareness campaign successful!

The SIU community is working together to bring breast cancer awareness to campus.

In this effort, the Saluki Strength Breast Cancer Scholarship and Endowment Fund was created to award scholarships and provide additional assistance to SIU students impacted by breast cancer.

The Saluki Strength Scholarship has awarded over $10,000 in scholarships to SIU students who have been affected by breast cancer. Our goal is to raise enough money to endow the scholarship fund so that it can become self-sustaining.
