Introduced in 2019 as part of the launch of Kia Motors America’s “Give It Everything” strategy, the goal of the scholarship program is to discover and reward young Americans with the brand’s spirit. “An ongoing tenet of Kia’s “Give It Everything” is to give back in meaningful ways, and Kia is proud to support the educational ambitions of America’s youth in the second year of the Great Unknowns Scholarship,” said Russell Wager, director, marketing operations, Kia Motors America. “The freshman class of scholarship recipients has proven to be extraordinarily bright and talented and we are excited to add to that group and help more young people pursue their academic dreams.”

Winning recipients will be notified in June. First-year recipients of The Great Unknowns Scholarship enrolled at a variety of colleges and universities including Harvard University, University of Alabama – Huntsville, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, University of Texas – San Antonio, Duke University, and the University of Pennsylvania.  Those students study a wide range of coursework from economics and computer science to public policy, neuroscience and aerospace engineering.

Kia Country would love to see a Charleston area student win a scholarship. Please help us spread the word.
