ARTBA announced earlier this month it was seeking applications from qualified high school students for the 2016/2017 Lanford Family Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program.

The scholarship is worth up to $5,000 and has helped more than 120 students pay for college since its inception 16 years ago.

To be eligible, students must attend a post-secondary institution of learning such as any public or private four-year accredited college, a two-year college or a vocational technical college. The scholarship is also eligible to M.B.A. candidates and master’s degree students in civil engineering, construction management and other construction-related programs.

The deadline to enter is April 8. For more information, see the online brochure for the scholarship. Nominate a student or apply yourself online or by contacting Eileen Houliha at
