Childhood cancer takes many things away
from children, college should not be one of them.

We are proud to offer two Northwestern Mutual scholarships: one for childhood cancer survivors and one for siblings of those affected by childhood cancer. These students deserve every opportunity to pursue higher education and continue to achieve their dreams


Funding a Brighter Future

We realize the financial and emotional toll childhood cancer has on the whole family and we are honored to help these scholars, both survivors and siblings, pursue their dreams. Applications will open December 1, 2021 for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Northwestern Mutual’s scholarship program – which is currently the only cancer-related scholarship program that honors the challenges that siblings of patients endure – provided the Gregg family recognition for the often overlooked toll the disease can have on the whole family. “It was just such a validating experience even to know that they offered a sibling scholarship,” Maria notes. She is pictured here with her twin brothers Adam (FLC survivor) and Conrad who are also scholarship recipients.
