The ABA Foundation has awarded more than $1 million in financial support to more than 300 scholars since the program began after the death of then ABA President and CEO George T. Snyder Jr. in 1995. Our scholarship programs help ABA members and the general public earn degrees that support the motorcoach travel and tour industry as well as promote academic excellence and diversity.
