True to Kelly’s dedicated spirit, the KLL Scholarship Foundation was established to help young adults achieve a college education. Each year the KLL Foundation will seek out eligible candidates to offer financial and emotional support as they pursue their dreams in the aftermath of cancer. Scholarship will be a $1,500 gift, renewable for up to a total of four years ($6,000 total maximum), and awarded annually.
In addition to our mission to provide scholarships to deserving young students, we have other needs and hope that you are able to help us through any of the following:
- Spread the word about Kelly’s scholarships to eligible young students;
- Help us in fundraising; and
- Suggest additional resources and/or provide contributions to this site in Kelly’s name and honor.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
