N.I.C.K.’S Scholarships

Through our fundraising efforts, our foundation has also established a scholarship program called N.I.C.K.’S Scholarships. Individuals, families, and companies attending our fundraising event can pledged money to help young adults who have beaten cancer attend college.

Below, please find a list of our college scholarship students and graduates. Some of the same children we have sent to camp have beaten cancer and actually gone to college on our scholarships. What is truly amazing is to witness some of the children who we first sent to camp and have beaten their disease and attended college on one of our scholarships. We now have doctors and social workers that are helping kids with the same cancer they once battled. Though your generosity, we have now helped over 25 young adults impacted by cancer achieve their life’s dream by providing a college education. With N.I.C.K.’S Scholarships and your continued support, we can help make their life’s dreams come true.

j28The Chiera family helps children achieve their ultimate dreams. For me personally, the foundation provided a scholarship to attend the University of Miami. More importantly, against all odds, I GRADUATED from the University of Miami. Thank you Chiera Family Foundation for helping ME achieve my ultimate dream!
