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.

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.

  • The application deadline is March 31, 2019.

  • Scholarship awardees will be notified by April 15, 2019.

Congratulations to our 2018 College Scholar recipients, Melissa Peace and Malachi Thompson!
