Now accepting applications for 2019!
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!
