St. Christopher Fund Accepting Scholarship Applications for Veterans
Date:12/12/2013

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

Solid entry-level driver training and job skill development is closely linked to a truck driver’s safety, well-being and good health. It is part of the mission of the St. Christopher Truckers Development & Relief Fund (SCF) to support the truck driving community by helping put skilled, healthy drivers on our highways. It is also part of our mission to support the development of truck driving as a solid, respectable career – like those critically needed by our military veterans who have come home needing more than just a job, but a rewarding career.

For that reason, the SCF announced today that it will distribute a $10,000 trade school scholarship available to the men and women who have served our nation’s armed forces. Executive Director Donna Kennedy commented that, “With all that our military veterans have sacrificed for us, The St. Christopher Fund feels truly honored to be able to provide a scholarship to a veteran in need. We hope this opportunity will provide one of them with the tools to succeed in the trucking industry.”

The St. Christopher Fund (SCF) is still accepting scholarship applications for the TBS Factoring Service Trade School Scholarship. The $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to one veteran whose intention is to learn the driving trade or advance their driving career. The recipient of the scholarship must show financial need and must demonstrate a desire to further her/his career in a trucking industry related career. The scholarship will be awarded without regard to sex, race, color, national origin, or religion.    

The SCF Board of Directors will oversee the scholarship and allocate the monies to the trade school of the chosen applicant’s choice upon confirmation of enrollment. Applications will be available online at http://www.truckersfund.org or you can request one be mailed/faxed to you by calling 865-202-9428 or emailing contact(at)truckersfund(dot)org. Applications will be accepted through December 31, 2013. The scholarship winner will be announced in early January.

This scholarship program was made possible by a $10,000 grant from TBS Factoring Service, LLC, of Oklahoma City, a family business providing flexible cash flow solutions to independent truckers.
