ARTBA Accepting Applications for 2004 Highway Worker Memorial ScholarshipAbstract:
The American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) is now accepting nominations for the “Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program” for the 2004 academic year. The program provides financial assistance to help the children of highway construction workers killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty pursue post-high school education. The scholarship program was launched in Oct. 1999 through a generous $100,000 gift from the families of past ARTBA Chairmen Jack and Stan Lanford of Roanoke, Va. The scholarships have a value up to $2,000 and are supported by contributions from highway construction industry executives, firms and labor groups nationwide. Scholarship winners will be announced on or before May 15, 2004.
