2024 Scholarship Applications will be accepted beginning December 1, 2023
Welcome to Captain Spectrum's "Be Kind" Scholarship, a heartfelt tribute to the extraordinary life and legacy of Chris Miller.
Chris was a courageous autistic adult who tragically left us in February 2021. His unwavering commitment to combat bullying and promote inclusivity inspired the creation of this scholarship in his honor.
As Captain Spectrum, Chris fearlessly advocated for kindness and fostered friendships that transcended differences, especially among those with disabilities. His impactful efforts touched countless lives, instilling courage and self-confidence in kids on the autism spectrum.
In partnership with AutismTN and the Miller family, this scholarship ensures Chris's mission endures. Each year, we award this scholarship to a deserving autistic teen or adult who embodies Chris's spirit by demonstrating exceptional kindness, tirelessly fighting bullying, and nurturing friendships.
If you are a person on the autism spectrum with aspirations for post-secondary education at a university, community college, or vocational technical school, we encourage you to apply. Be a part of carrying forward Chris's legacy of compassion and empowerment. Join us in making a difference and building a more supportive world.
