Scholarships

For over 50 years, The Traffic Club has awarded scholarships to local college students related to our members.

We view this as an essential part of our community involvement and an ideal way to help the next generation toward their goals.  The Club sponsors at least one award annually of no less than $1000, and in some years provides multiple awards depending on the number of students applying, the quality of the submissions, and available funds.  The award is based on academic performance, community involvement, and the candidate’s presentation of themselves through an essay submitted as part of their application.  Scholarship opportunities are open to all Traffic Club members and their families.
