AAA Ohio Auto Club is offering high school seniors the opportunity to apply for one of ten $1,000 grants by competing in the AAA School Safety Patrol Grant Scholarship Program.  The program is limited to high school seniors who once served as a member of the AAA School Safety Patrol and is designed to help former AAA School Safety Patrol members further their education after graduation.

To enter, students must complete an application, which seeks information on academic record, safety patrol experience, in-school and out-of-school activities, and references.  Additionally, applicants must write a minimum 500 word double-spaced essay, provide school transcripts and include a letter of recommendation.

Once all applications have been reviewed, fifteen finalists will be chosen for a phone interview with members of the AAA Ohio Auto Club Traffic Safety Department, who will make the final decision.  Recipients of the grants are chosen based on their academic performance, school and community service, letter of recommendation, essay and the interview.  The five finalists who are interviewed but not awarded a $1,000 grant will receive a $250 grant.
