The NASCAR Foundation Scholarship Program

The NASCAR Foundation Scholarship Program

In an effort to further our focus on education, The NASCAR Foundation established a scholarship program 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 institution located in Florida of the student's choice. Annually the program will distribute 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. In 2014, The NASCAR Foundation was able to award 11 scholarships from proceeds raised at the sold-out event.
