The Milky Mama scholarship program is being administered and awarded directly by Milky Mama, LLC as a corporate entity and not being managed as a non-profit foundation.

Applicant Records Security and Retention

Milky Mama, LLC does not collect highly confidential information for the privacy and protection of our scholarship applicants. All information collected during the application process is managed safely and not shared with anyone outside of Milky Mama’s scholarship selection committee for application review and awarding purposes, and the company’s accounts payable department to distribute awards to scholarship winners/educational organizations.

Milky Mama, LLC does not sell, license or otherwise use applicant information or data for any additional purposes.

To track scholarship tuition reimbursement payments and to ensure that each awardee only receives one scholarship, Milky Mama, LLC will permanently retain the names and details of its five annual scholarship winners. Additional electronic applicant records will be purged after the scholarship award selection process has concluded.
