UL Safer Roads India Grants - road safety for Indian youth apply now!

Road safety is the biggest public safety challenge that India faces, with an average of 15 deaths every hour caused by road accidents. As the safety thought leader, UL has been working on game-changing ways to address road safety in India. With more than 50% of India’s population under age 25, we believe that India’s young people are uniquely suited to help solve this problem, especially since it personally affects them and their peers.

Building on the Safer Roads, Safer India campaign, UL is partnering with YSA to support creative solutions from young people about how they can help create safer roads and a safer India. Now is a pivotal time for youth to contribute and make the Safer Roads, Safer India campaign their own.

Two YSA Grants programs are helping youth find their voice, take action, and make an impact on the issue of road safety in India.


Through these programs, youth are:

  • raising public awareness about road safety,
  • educating their peers and community members to increase safe behaviors,
  • leading community service projects that engage volunteers in addressing road safety issues, and
  • advocating for policies to increase road safety.
