If you or someone you know has served in the nation’s armed forces and would like to train for or advance a driving career, there’s a $10,000 scholarship out there waiting to be claimed.

The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund is accepting applications for a $10,000 trade school scholarship available to the men and women who have served our nation’s armed forces. This scholarship program is being funded by a $10,000 grant from TBS Factoring Service of Oklahoma City.

The 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.

Applications will be available online, or you can request one be mailed/faxed to you by calling 865-202-9428 or by emailing Applications will be accepted through Dec. 31, 2013.

The SCF was founded in late 2007 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The SCF’s mission is to provide assistance to professional truck drivers whose medical problems have led to financial hardship.
