Company announces 2019 program recipients, opens application process for 2020 submissions
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwestern Mutual is dedicated to supporting children and families who have been impacted by childhood cancer through research funding and providing resources for survivors and their families. Today, through its Foundation, the company announced the recipients of its 2019 Childhood Cancer Survivor and Sibling Scholarship program. The application process for the 2020 program is also now open for submissions.
"Childhood cancer takes away many things from children – and a chance to go to college should not be one of them," said Eric Christophersen, president, Northwestern Mutual Foundation. "Our college scholarship program grants both survivors and siblings of those affected the opportunity to continue their education and pursue college dreams."
As lasting financial challenges often result from expensive cancer treatments, the scholarship program was created to ease the financial stress of college on families by helping to fund tuition and school fees. Each of the 35 students selected as a scholarship recipient has been affected by childhood cancer, either as a survivor or sibling, and has demonstrated a strong academic standing. All applicants wrote an essay detailing his or her personal experience with childhood cancer; those selected will receive a $5,000 renewable scholarship for a total of $10,000.
Recipients of the 2019 Childhood Cancer Survivor and Sibling Scholarship program include:
