Since 2006, Mitchell Proner has awarded an annual $1,000 scholarship to a college student to subsidize their educational needs. The recipient is selected by the Board of A.B.A.T.E. of New York as exemplifying dedication to the motorcycle rights movement.
Applications for the scholarship are available through A.B.A.T.E. of New York, and the award is funded solely by Mitchell Proner.
