Accepting Applications for 2021



Distracted driving, including due to texting and other cell phone use, is a serious issue that leads to hundreds of thousands of accidents and injuries in the United States each year. The problem is especially prominent among teen and young adult drivers, and teens are also at a greater risk of being the victim of a distracted driving accident.

At Kanoski Bresney, we want to support students who do their part to fight the problem of distracted driving. Through the Kanoski Bresney Stand Up to Distracted Driving Scholarship program, we are offering five scholarships, in the amount of $2,000 each, to students throughout the U.S. who are pursuing higher education at the undergraduate or graduate level.
