Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program


Toward Zero Scholarships

The Foundation provides scholarships for loved ones of fallen or permanently disabled roadway workers until we can reduce the number of work zone deaths. It is our hope to eventually give out zero scholarships as a result of zero fatalities.

The Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program provides financial assistance for post-high school education to dependents (children and spouses) of roadway workers killed or permanently disabled in roadway work zones. The Foundation will help ensure that their dependents academic dreams will continue.

This program is competitive and has a value of up to $10,000. Applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to volunteerism may be eligible to receive an additional $1,000 in honor of Chuck Bailey, who was an esteemed member of the roadway safety industry who passed away in June 2002.

Application Deadline* - The application deadline for 2020 recipients is Feb. 15, 2020

*Applications must be postmarked before this date.
