TCA Opens 2009 Scholarship Program with Significant Changes
The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is opening up its annual scholarship application process on May 11, with applications due on Friday, June 12, 2009. However, this year there are some significant changes to the program:
The Scholarship Fund's Board of Trustees voted to make the changes at a meeting held April 14 in Irving, Texas, office of Bill Webb, the 2009-10 Scholarship Fund chairman and an operating partner with Fenway Partners.
Don Orr, the past Scholarship Fund chairman, who will be staying on as a trustee, said, "Because the economy is so bad, a lot of people are going back to school, so we're expecting to be flooded with applications this year. We felt it was time to revisit some of our criteria to make the program even more beneficial to the trucking industry and its people."
TCA has been offering scholarships through its Scholarship Fund since 1973. For more scholarship information and to download the official rules and an application, visit www.truckload.org/scholarships.
