Northwestern Mutual Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist siblings of individuals who are in current treatment, have survived or passed away from childhood cancer who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Employees and children of employees of Northwestern Mutual Foundation Inc. and The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company (and any of its affiliates and subsidiaries) are ineligible to apply.
Those who do not receive a scholarship are invited to reapply in following years. Previous recipients are not eligible to apply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in April whether they have been selected as a finalist. Finalists will be asked to provide medical verification of sibling’s diagnosis. Finalists will be notified in late April whether they have been selected as a recipient. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as finalists, and not all finalists will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Northwestern Mutual Foundation. Payments are made in one installment early August.
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does an officer or employee of Northwestern Mutual Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
