WASHINGTON, DC – The American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s Foundation is seeking eligible student recipients of its 2024-2025 Lanford Family Transportation Construction Worker Memorial Scholarship Program.

Applications are due Friday, April 19 and are available at www.artbafoundation.org.

The program, expanded in 2023, provides post-high school financial assistance to children of transportation construction workers killed or permanently disabled on the job. It includes industry professionals who were working on projects in these sectors: airports, bridges, marine, ports and waterways, public transit, roads, railroads, tunnels and utilities.

Originally known as the Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship when established in 1999 by Roanoke, Va.-based contractors and brothers Stan and Jack Lanford, the fund provided more than $800,000 in aid to 214 students across 38 states from 2000 to 2023.

Recipients must attend a post-secondary institution of learning that requires a high school diploma or equivalent. Graduate students who meet the eligibility criteria are also able to apply. The scholarships have a value of up to $10,000 annually.
