Culver, IN, April 25, 2015 –(PR.com)-– TruckerToTrucker.com today launches a scholarship resource to inform transportation workers and their families about the scholarship opportunities available in this industry.

There are eight different scholarship programs totaling $18,000+ in annual award opportunities on the Trucker to Trucker resource page with more to be added in the coming months. Awards can be used to pay for college and graduate school, as well as commercial truck driving schools.

The scholarship resource consolidates various programs and grants offered by companies, non-profits, and state and national transportation organizations across the US to provide a single source of information for trucking and transportation industry specific scholarship opportunities.

“There are dozens of generous scholarships available to the members of our industry and their families, but few people know about them,” said Jimmy Steele, communications coordinator for TruckerToTrucker.com. “We wanted to make it easy for people to find a program that will help make their education more affordable.”

Each program has unique requirements and eligibility guidelines. The resource page is located at http://www.truckertotrucker.com/trucking-scholarship-resource.cfm, and provides links to the full details of each scholarship to help students find current information on the awards.

“In 2013, we started to offer a scholarship for students to attend a commercial driving program. Even after reaching out to schools and organizations to spread the word, it was almost impossible to give the money away,” said Steele. “After talking with other groups who had the same issue, we realized that the industry needed a single resource that students can visit to understand all their opportunities.”

TruckerToTrucker.com offers two types of award each year. A $1000 college scholarship for the children or grandchildren of those working in the transportation industry. And, a $500 truck driving school scholarship for those who wish to start a career as a professional driver.
