We celebrate the 400,000+ childhood cancer survivors in the United States today, while also recognizing that many survivors struggle with lasting physical and emotional challenges related to treatment. We are committed to raising awareness about the need for ongoing screening and support for survivors.

We are proud to launch our Northwestern Mutual Survivor Scholarship Program to give survivors of childhood cancer the opportunity to continue their education and pursue their college dreams. We will award 25 $5,000 scholarships in May for the 2018 - 2019 school year. Applications for the 2019 - 2020 school year will be availble in December.
