The purpose of the Kailee Mills Foundation Scholarship Program is to educate teen drivers about seat belt safety through seat belt awareness, research, volunteerism, and leadership. Scholarship recipients deliver high levels of academic achievement, ambition, leadership, and a desire to make a difference. The Kailee Mills Foundation has awarded $191,000 in scholarships since 2020.
We award numerous scholarships to students across the United States each year. The scholarship awards vary in range but could be up to $20,000. These scholarships must be used at any 2-year or 4-year accredited college or university. All applicants must show academic achievement and help to spread seat belt safety awareness in their community. The scholarship application is now open, and we will accept applications through April 1, 2024.
Scholarship awards of $5,000 and above are distributed at $5,000 per semester. Awarded amounts under $5,000 will be a one-time distribution. Any awarded amount unused in a semester will be rolled over to the next semester. All scholarship funds will be paid directly to the college or university at the beginning of each spring and fall semester as long as the recipient requirements have been met.
