There is just one week left to apply for the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation’s (ARTBA-TDF) 2016-17 Lanford Family Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program. Qualified students should submit an application by April 8.

Now in its 16th year, the scholarship provides post-high school financial assistance to the children of highway workers who have been killed or permanently disabled while working in roadway construction zones. More than 120 students from across America have been beneficiaries of the program.

Eligible students must attend a post-secondary institution of learning that requires a high school diploma or its equivalent for admission, including any public or private four-year accredited college or university; two-year accredited college; or vocational technical college or training institution. MBA candidates and master’s degree students in civil engineering, construction management and other construction-related programs will also be considered.

For more information, or if you have a lead on a student who may be eligible, contact ARTBA’s Eileen Houlihan at 202.289.4434.
