Kinedyne Corp., under its Kinedyne Cares initiative launched in 2008, is offering two $2,500 college scholarships this year. The scholarships will be awarded to one student each from the Virginia and Ohio state trucking associations.

To enter, applicants must submit an entry form and write a 500 word or less essay addressing the topic “How the trucking industry has had a positive impact on my life.”

To qualify, candidates must be members in good standing of the Virginia Trucking Assn. or Ohio Trucking Assn. Applicants may also be directly related to a member of either association. In addition, candidates must currently be enrolled in, or in the process of registering to attend, a college or university. The submission deadline is May 31.

“All of us affiliated in any way with the trucking industry understand it will be some time before it recovers fully,” said James Klausmann II, the company’s executive vp. “Families are faced with many financial hardships, not the least of which is funding a college education. We initiated this scholarship program last year as part of our Kinedyne Cares program, to help provide some assistance to deserving families within our industry. The program was very well received in its first year and we’re excited to be in a position to continue supporting people associated with the trucking industry.”
