FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Plover, WI: The Women In Trucking Scholarship Foundation was formed in 2011 to provide financial assistance to anyone pursuing education in the area of safety, truck driving, leadership, or as a technician. Since 2013, the organization has awarded seventeen men and women scholarships.
This year, the foundation is opening up the application process for a second time and is encouraging anyone attending a training facility to submit an application on its website womenintruckingfoundation.org.
Applications will be accepted through the end of July and students will be notified in early August.
Anyone pursuing a career in the trucking industry may apply. Membership in the Women In Trucking Association is not a prerequisite (although certainly encouraged). Scholarships are not limited to women, either.
More information can be found on the website.
Women In Trucking Association, Inc. is a nonprofit association established to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry.

Women In Trucking is supported by its members and the generosity of Gold Level Partners: Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, Daimler Trucks NA, GE Capital Transportation Finance, Great Dane Trailers, J.B. Hunt Transport, Ryder Systems, Inc., U.S. Xpress, and Walmart. Follow WIT on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. For more information, visit http://www.womenintrucking.org or call 888-464-9482.
