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.

2018-2019 Candlelighters Continuing Education Scholarship

The application process for the 2018-2019 Candlelighters Scholarship is now closed.  Candlelighters will be rewarding three $2,500 scholarships to qualified applicants. Our all-volunteer Scholarship Review Committee is currently reviewing applications and applicants will be notified of award status in May 2018.

Congratulations to our 2017 Scholarship Award Winners!
