The NASCAR Foundation Scholarship Program
In an effort to further our focus on education, we established a scholarship program in 2014 to assist students in Volusia County, Florida who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited Florida institution of the student's choice. The program annually distributes a minimum of 10 one time awards of $2,500 for undergraduate study. Proceeds from the Taste of the 24 event at Daytona International Speedway fund the scholarship program - thank you attendees and sponsors!
Since the program's inception, we are pleased that a wide breath of Volusia County high schools are represented amongst our 20 scholarship recipients to date. Schools include Deland High School, Deltona High School, Father Lopez Catholic High School, Pine Ridge High School, Seabreeze High School, Spruce Creek High School, T Dewitt Taylor High School, University High School and Warner Christian Academy.
About Our 2016 Class
The NASCAR Foundation honored 10 very deserving Volusia County high school seniors with $2,500 scholarships to attend a two-year or four-year college, university or vocational school of their choice in Florida.
The 2016 NASCAR Foundation Scholarships were awarded to Edward Cronin (Deltona), Keymira Frost (Mainland), Elena De Marco, Samantha Lamb, Heather Malchiodi, Devon Robinson (New Smyrna Beach), Valerie Nadeau (Pine Ridge), Kajsa Lebo, Haley Tabor, Hannah Tabor (Spruce Creek).
"As a first generation college student, The NASCAR Foundation scholarship will help my parents pay for college without it being a burden," said recipient Keymira Frost. "I always felt my hard work would pay off and this is confirmation of that hard work."
