Scholarships


 Candlelighters Continuing Education Scholarship Program.

In 1996, Candlelighters For Children With Cancer established the Candlelighters Continuing Education Scholarship Program. We recognize that families can amass overwhelming debt in medical bills after years of treatment, follow up appointments, and on-going medical issues caused by treatment. The journey doesn’t stop for families, and Candlelighters support doesn’t stop either. Financial assistance is awarded to high school seniors or current college students to support their pursuit of a higher education who have previously been or are currently diagnosed with cancer.


2019 - 2020 Candlelighters Continuing Education Scholarship Applications Are closed!

Congratulations to our 2018-19 Scholarship Award Winners!
