The American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF)
“Lanford Family Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program” provides financial assistance to help the sons, daughters, or legally adopted children of highway workers killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty pursue post-high-school education. Scholarships are awarded annually. The scholarship program was launched in October 1999 through a generous gift from the families of past ARTBA chairmen Jack (1991) and Stan (1999) Lanford of Roanoke, Virginia. Today, it is supported by contributions from highway construction industry executives and firms, state transportation groups, and labor organizations.
The applicant must use the scholarship award to attend a post-secondary institution of learning that requires a high
school diploma or Graduate Equivalent Degree (G.E.D.) for admission. This could include any public or private: (a) four-year accredited college or university; (b) two-year accredited college; or (c) vocational-technical college or training institution.
