Saluki Strength Breast Cancer Scholarship 2021

Start Seeing Pink! The SIU community is working together to bring breast cancer awareness to campus. In this effort, the Saluki Strength Breast Cancer Fund was created to award scholarships and provide additional assistance to SIU students impacted by breast cancer. Every October "Pink" events and opportunities to donate will be happening all around campus. We invite everyone to participate, donate and Support Like A Saluki!

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


Dana Pietrusiak

Major:  Economics

"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, the plans I had made for my life were no longer an option. I had been working hard to get in “good health” because I had wanted to start a family. Because I am older, I went for my first mammogram, not thinking much about it, except to confirm that I was doing well. Naturally I was surprised to learn that I had cancer."
