Childhood cancer often leaves many families in debt, and the survivor with learning challenges that may make it difficult to get into college or other post-secondary educational institutions.

To help ease that burden, Special Love provides educational scholarships to young cancer survivors  who’ve participated in Special Love’s programs for books, housing and tuition through our Kay/Moore Scholarship Fund, and our Guardian Scholarships.

The Kay/Moore Scholarship Fund was established in 1989 to provide scholarships to both current and past campers.  To date, we provided more than 650 scholarships to Special Love campers.

Guardian Scholarships allow donors to establish a scholarship in their name, or that of a loved one or company.  Scholarships are awarded to deserving applicants who donors have the opportunity to meet and receive progress reports on the recipients progress.

If you are interested in learning more, or would like to apply for a scholarship, contact Dave Smith.

For information in establishing a Guardian Scholarship, contact Robin Couch Cardillo.  You may help launch a young cancer survivor into the next level of education!
