The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is pleased to announce that its TCA Scholarship fund application period is officially open, and the program has been expanded to accept applicants from full-time students attending accredited two-year programs at Junior Colleges. In past years, the program has only awarded four-year accredited college students and TCA is excited about this change that will allow both types of college students to participate. TCA is confident that this new format and expansion will open more doors for students looking to pursue a supply chain and logistics career. Scholarship monies to be awarded are for the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semesters.

For nearly 50 years, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) Scholarship Fund has been helping students with connections to the truckload industry. The Fund awards up to $6,250 per year, per full-time four-year college student and then up to $2,000 per full-time two-year college student. In the 2023-2024 school year, the TCA Scholarship Fund’s Board of Trustees awarded 48 students scholarships totaling more than $140,000 and it is projected that $159,000 will be given for the next academic year.

Much of the program’s support comes from within the truckload TCA family—companies and individuals who are committed to our truckload community’s future. Any student in good standing (minimum grade point average of 3.0) who will be attending an accredited, four-year or two-year college or university as a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, and who is either the child, grandchild, or spouse of an employee or is an employee of a TCA member company or is the child, grandchild, or spouse of an independent contractor or an independent contractor affiliated with a TCA member company is encouraged to apply.

Joey Hogan, Board Member at Covenant Logistics and Chairman of the TCA Scholarship Committee, is pleased with this new format. “The longevity of this program combined with the donor’s support and focus on paying forward to hundreds of participants emphasizes an additional benefit of TCA membership. To the donors we are extremely grateful and the addition of the Junior Colleges to the program recognizes the trades that are also vitally important to our industry.”

Zander Gambill, TCA’s Vice President of Membership & Outreach, also had this to say about the scholarship program. “TCA is super excited to broaden the scholarship program to now include full time two-year college students. This expansion is a no brainer and will support more students looking to start a transportation-based career.”

This program is only available for students affiliated with a TCA member company and that includes for-hire carrier members as well as associate members.
