C.H. Robinson is continuing to show its appreciation for the truck driving community by awarding scholarships to employees and dependents of its 85,000 contract carriers.
The company’s C.H. Robinson Foundation this year is offering 25 scholarships of $2,500 each. Applications will be accepted through Feb. 28. The program is open to employees or dependents of contract carriers that have been active as a C.H. Robinson carrier for a minimum of one year as of the application date.
“The C.H. Robinson Foundation was created to give back to our employees and our communities,” said Rachel Schwalbach, vice president of ESG at C.H. Robinson. “By providing scholarships to our contract carrier community, we are happy to support and help expand the educational success of C.H. Robinson carriers and their children.”
Applicants must also:
- Be age 16 to 24 or regular, full-time employees of the qualified carrier.
- Be high school seniors, high school graduates, or current post-secondary undergraduates. Students outside the United States must be in their final year of upper or higher secondary school or current technical or university-level students.
- Pursue undergraduate study in any field for the entire 2022-23 academic year at an accredited or bona fide college, university, or vocational technical school. Schools outside of the U.S. are considered bona fide if they have a student population, a defined curriculum, faculty, and campus.
- Enroll in full-time study if they’re a dependent, but can enroll in part-time study if employees of qualified carriers.
Scholarship winners are chosen based on their academic record, school and community activities, work experience, and a statement on their educational and career goals.
