Cancer shouldn’t mean the end of personal goals and ambition. 


Dare to Dream ScholarshipIf you’re 15 to 24 and have cancer, or you’re a cancer survivor, the Redkite and Coles Dare to Dream Scholarships are your chance to tell us what your dream is, how cancer got in the way, and how a scholarship or grant could help you make it happen. 

The 2016 recipient of the national Dare to Dream Scholarship is 18-year-old Madison, who received a $6000 grant, giving her the opportunity to pursue her dream of becoming a professional dancer. She is one of 40 winners in 2016. 


“Dancing has been there throughout the negative and positive experiences in my life, and my dream is for this to continue.  It is such an honour to receive the Dare to Dream scholarship, which will go towards my university fees. Ultimately this will provide me with an opportunity to audition for a dance company in Australia and achieve my lifelong dream of dancing professionally,” Madison said. Read more about the 2016 winners here.
