AAA Ohio Auto Club helps former School Safety Patrol members further their education after graduation through the AAA School Safety Patrol $1,000 Grant. Ten $1,000 grants are presented each year to high school seniors who once served as a safety patrol team member. Students in Ohio Auto Club territory may apply.

Information and application forms are sent to all public, private and parochial schools in Ohio Auto Club territory. Check with your high school guidance office to obtain the application form. Students must complete the application, including their academic record, safety patrol, experience, in-school and out-of-school activities and references, and a maximum 500-word essay.

Application must be signed by the guidance counselor or other school official and the applicant. 15 finalists will be chosen for a phone interview. Recipients are selected based on their academic performance, school/community service, the essay and the interview.
