Hawkins Spizman Kilgo, LLC Childhood Cancer Awareness Scholarship

Hawkins Spizman Kilgo, LLC is pleased to announce our Childhood Cancer Awareness Scholarship, in support of those who have survived or been directly affected by childhood cancer. This $1,000 scholarship will support one hard-working student who has had firsthand experience with this devastating disease.

At Hawkins Spizman Kilgo, LLC, we have worked in support of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) for years. We know how difficult the struggle with cancer is. It takes determination and a strong spirit to undergo the exhausting course of treatments that are often needed. This battle is particularly trying for children and their families. Pursuing an education becomes more challenging in the context of this fight, and we hope that our scholarship will help a deserving student achieve their goals.

We believe all cancer survivors and their loved ones should have the opportunity for higher education. We encourage all eligible students to apply, and look forward to granting this scholarship.
