Dare to Dream Scholarship

2017 applications are now closed. Information about scholarship recipients will be posted here soon. If you have questions about your application, please contact us at or 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548). 


We believe cancer shouldn't get in the way of your goals. Whether your passion is sports, arts, study or your dream job, a Redkite and Coles Dare to Dream Scholarship can help you get there.


If you're under 25 and have been diagnosed at any age, you could receive up to $5000. Just tell us what your dream is, how cancer got in the way, and how a scholarship or grant could help you make it happen.


19-year-old Madison received the 2016 national Dare to Dream scholarship, and is using it  to pursue her dream of becoming a professional dancer.


“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. 


Applications for 2018 will open soon.
