Toward Zero Scholarships
The Foundation provides travel scholarships for children and a guardian who have lost a parent, sibling, or caregiver to a roadway work zone incident to attend an Experience Camp. Experience Camps are free camps held across the country where children can have fun and work through their grief. The Foundation's Experience Camps Travel Scholarship enables healing and fun for children impacted by work zone crashes. It is our hope to eventually give out zero scholarships as a result of zero fatalities.
For children coping with the loss of a loved one, attending an Experience Camp can be a transformative experience. The one-week camps are held across the country each summer, providing an opportunity for children to work through the grief of losing a loved one in a safe space among other children going through a similar situation.
“While The Foundation will continue the Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program for higher education dreams, this additional program is geared to children who are left with heartache when a loved one is killed in a work zone,” said Foundation President Tom Wood, of Sherwin-Williams.
