Most victims were unwittingly exposed to asbestos at work or while serving in the military. Others developed mesothelioma because of exposure from family members coming home from work with their clothes covered in asbestos fibers. The average survival time after a mesothelioma diagnosis varies from four to 18 months.

Interested applicants may submit an essay between 750 and 1,500 words on any one of the following three topics: A mesothelioma survivor’s personal story, A history of asbestos use in American manufacturing/industry,The latest developments in the treatment of mesothelioma.
