Truckload Carriers Association Names 2020-21 Scholarship Recipients


TCA awards $150,000 in scholarship money – Meet the recipients


Alexandria, Virginia:

The Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Scholarship Fund will be providing financial assistance to more than 50 undergraduate college students for the 2020-21 academic school year. Each student will receive a scholarship ranging from $2,725 to $6,250 from a total pool of nearly $150,000.

Since 1973, the Fund has been providing scholarships to students associated with the trucking industry. Each scholarship recipient must be a student in good standing attending a four-year college or university and must be associated with a TCA member company as an employee, independent contractor, or the child, grandchild, or spouse of an employee or independent contractor of a TCA member company.

The Fund awards its scholarships without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, or genetic information.

“I love seeing the impact that the TCA Scholarship Fund and the awards make on so many college students each year,” said TCA Scholarship Fund Chairman and Wilson Logistics Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Darrel Wilson. “I always look forward to learning more about the students and following their success due in small part to the help from the TCA Scholarships.”

This year, the Fund is proud to announce that it received the most applications to date.

Adhering to its bylaws, six TCA Scholarship Fund Trustees judged the applicants, taking into considering the applicant’s GPA, major, extracurricular activities, hours worked, and more.

The seven largest scholarships are named in honor of dedicated members, affiliates, and past TCA chairmen.
