Program offers scholarships to students fighting cancer

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Kids Cancer Alliance, a Kentucky based non-profit organization dedicated to serving children with cancer and their families, has announced a new Survivor Scholarship Fund.

Kids Cancer Alliance has grown its programs in recent years and officials are now announcing another area where they can assist children who are battling cancer: The Survivor Scholarship Program.

The scholarship fund was established to support young adult survivors and to assist them in pursuing their academic and professional goals. The scholarship program will assist students who attend an accredited university, community college, vocational or technical school.

Kids Cancer Alliance is now accepting applications from individuals who meet the criteria, demonstrate financial need, and show academic and personal potential.

Executive Director Shelby Dehner said, "We help these children from the time they begin their cancer treatments and now it's an honor to help them beyond that and into adulthood and hopefully positively impact the rest of their lives."

Each Kids Cancer Alliance program is provided free of charge to the families of children with cancer and are fully funded by donations from individuals, businesses and foundations throughout the community.
