Dare to Dream Scholarship 2023 – Applications open Monday 1 May!

Applications for the annual scholarship are opening for a limited time for teenagers aged 13-18 who have had cancer at any stage of their life.

We believe that cancer shouldn’t get in the way of teens achieving their goals.

Each year, Redkite and Coles offer teenagers aged 13-18 who have been diagnosed with cancer at any stage of their life up to $5,000 to help them achieve a goal that’s important to them. It does not matter how big or small their goal is, what matters is their drive to achieve it.

Past recipients have had a diverse range of inspiring dreams, from becoming podcasters, musicians, artists and scientists to overcoming the challenges cancer has caused to regain their fitness, catch up on school or get their driver’s licence.

Since 2013, Redkite and Coles have awarded 375 scholarships worth over $750,000.
