2019 College Scholars Application

Children’s Cause for Cancer Advocacy (CCCA) is pleased to offer an annual opportunity for two childhood cancer survivors to gain valuable cancer advocacy experience. Award recipients will receive a scholarship of $2,000 via our College Scholars Program.

The 2019 scholarship form and a list of supplementary application materials is included below. The application deadline is March 31, 2019. Award recipients will be notified by April 15, 2019.

About the Program: Our College Scholars Program includes a requirement of completing a childhood cancer advocacy project of the scholar’s choice. Projects could be as extensive as a summer internship in our DC office to something more local, like organizing an awareness event in your hometown or mobilizing other students at your school in a letter-writing campaign. Your creativity is encouraged, and you’ll receive mentorship and support from the CCCA team toward completing your chosen project.

Please note: Scholarship recipients will receive the first half ($1,000) upon completion of a project planning call with our team. The remainder ($1,000) will be awarded after successful completion of the survivor’s advocacy project.
