TORONTO, Ont.--TransCore Link Logistics has announced the creation of its new scholarship program, LinkScholar. Dependents of TransCore clients are eligible to apply for one $2,500 scholarship based on academic excellence and one $2,500 scholarship based on demonstration of attributes of a model student, said the company in a release.
The LinkScholar Program aims to help students reach their potential by providing financial assistance towards their tuition.
“I see this program as an opportunity to give back to the communities in which we live and work. More importantly, it’s one more way we can give back to our customers,” says Claudia Milicevic, senior director and general manager of TransCore Link Logistics.
Open to TransCore Link Logistics’ customers who subscribe to its services, any employee in a member organization is eligible to have their child or grandchild apply for the scholarship, which includes but is not limited to company drivers, dispatchers and office coordinators.
This is the inaugural year for the annual program and applications are currently being accepted for these scholarship awards. Deadline to apply is June 30, 2014.
LinkScholar aims to aid the next generation of leaders in any study discipline they choose, and is not limited to transportation coursework, the company said.
The Program’s scholarships are available for many kinds of Canadian post-secondary education, such as vocational and trade schools, community colleges and universities. For more information or to download application forms, please visit www.transcore.ca/linkscholar.aspx.
