Project Yellow Light Scholarship
Project Yellow Light is a scholarship fund that was created in 2007 in honor of a young man named Hunter Garner from Fredericksburg, Virginia, who died in a car accident at the age of 16. The scholarship was created by his parents and sister to remember Hunter and help students across the nation, regardless of grades or athletic ability, to attend college.
To enter, students will submit a video of 25 seconds or 55 seconds that persuades teens to exercise safe driving habits. First, second, and third-place winners will be chosen in two categories, one for high school students, and one for college students. Applicants must be a high school junior or senior or a full-time college student to participate.
In addition, the winning video will be used in a national Ad Council public service announcement (PSA). The scholarship has gained national attention since its beginning and has reached thousands of teens.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $5,000.
