Driver Resource Center, which provides training and career placement services through its nationwide network of CDL schools, recently introduced the "Future of Trucking Scholarship."

This initiative aims to assist individuals pursuing careers as commercial truck drivers. Quarterly, one deserving applicant will receive a $1,000 scholarship to offset tuition costs at MTC Truck Driver Training in St. Louis, according to a statement from the company.

The Future of Trucking Scholarship is open to all aspiring drivers living in the St. Louis area, with a particular emphasis on supporting women and individuals from underrepresented communities. The company said the scholarship reflects its commitment to diversity and inclusion within the transportation industry.

The scholarships will be awarded quarterly.

"Truck drivers are the backbone of our economy, ensuring that goods are delivered safely and efficiently across the nation," said Brock Bauza, director of enrollment at Driver Resource Center. "Through this scholarship, we are not only investing in the future of transportation but also in the people who will drive our industry forward."

Applications for the scholarship are now open. More information on eligibility and deadlines can be found at https://driverresourcecenter.com/truck-driving-and-cdl-school-scholarships/ .
