Captain Spectrum's Be Kind Scholarship
Scholarship Applications due March 31, 2022
Scholarship Awarded on April 30, 2022

Captain Spectrum's Be Kind Scholarship upholds the legacy of Captain Spectrum's creators Chris and Curtis Miller. Chris Miller, a young man with autism, created Captain Spectrum to help teach people to be kind and to encourage friendships including those with disabilities. With his brother, Curtis Miller's help, they created a superhero persona and content to end bullying by teaching about kindness while giving kids on the autism spectrum courage and self-confidence. When Chris Miller's life tragically ended in February 2021, AutismTN partnered with the Miller family to ensure Chris and Curtis's efforts to decrease bullying and increase courage would continue. AutismTN believes that there are many teens and adults on the autism spectrum who demonstrate kindness and work tirelessly to fight bullying and encourage developing friendships. In partnership with Captain Spectrum, we recognize and honor the legacy of Chris Miller with a Post-Secondary Educational Scholarship.
