Thanks for your feedback!


The Herman Fauss Scholarship was established by the FTA Safety Management Council to recognize and reward outstanding high school academic performance and overall involvement in community affairs by children and grandchildren of commercial vehicle drivers in Florida.

Since 2006 more than $70,000 has been given to deserving students. 

Eligible graduating high school seniors are the child or grandchild of a full-time commercial vehicle driver: employed for at least one year from this application date by a current, dues-paying member of Florida Trucking Association, and dispatched from a Florida terminal.
