    I am very excited about the Trucker to Trucker Scholarship for driving school! I am quite surprised to see though, that it will not be awarded until November 15, 2013. It seems that it would be much more helpful to the recipient to receive more toward the beginning of their schooling. But it will still certainly be helpful for whoever receives it! Thanks for making it available in the first place!!

  2. TJ says:

    Thanks Linda, we tried to time the scholarship to coincide with a broad range of schools. We found many to be starting in January and June. We’d be open to adjusting the awards if need be! Our main goal is to help folks get started!

  3. Lauren says:

    How many winners will be awarded? Is the award the full amount or are there partial amounts if the full amount is not needed?

  4. TJ says:

    Hi Lauren,
    1 winner in November, 1 winner in May. If less than the full amount is needed we would award the desired amount.

  5. Dave says:

    Hi, was there a winner chosen? I been watching your site and facebook page and didn’t see any updates.

  6. Mel says:

    We are an accredited truck driving school. We have classes every month. Can your awards be adjusted on a monthly bases. This would help a lot of potential candidates that wants to obtain their Class A CDL. Some candidates can not come up with all of the tuition or they can’t get financed thru a bank. Any suggestions?

  7. TJ says:

    Hi Mel,
    We would work with someone if they needed an award spread out over time. We do hope to expand our program to at least 1 award per month. Hope that helps!
