This week, the St. Christopher Fund (SCF) announced their mission to support the trucking industry by helping well-qualified, skilled, healthy drivers on the road by offering a scholarship to military veterans.
“It is also part of our mission to support the development of truck driving as a solid, respectable career – like those critically needed by our military veterans who have come home needing more than just a job, but a rewarding career.” SCF stated.
SCF announced that it will offer a $10,000 scholarship to a men or women who has served our nation.
Executive Director Donna Kennedy said, “With all that our military veterans have sacrificed for us, The St. Christopher Fund feels truly honored to be able to provide a scholarship to a veteran in need. We hope this opportunity will provide one of them with the tools to succeed in the trucking industry.”
SCF is accepting the scholarship for the TBS Factoring Service Trade School Scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded to one scholarship to a veteran who shows a passion to become a truck driver. In addition, applicants must show financial need.
Applications are available online at http://www.truckersfund.org or you can request one be mailed/faxed to you by calling 865-202-9428 or emailing contact(at)truckersfund(dot)org. Applications will be accepted through December 31, 2013. The scholarship winner will be announced in early January.
This scholarship program was made possible by a $10,000 grant from TBS Factoring Service, LLC, of Oklahoma City, a family business providing flexible cash flow solutions to independent truckers.
