TORONTO, Ont. — The OTA Education Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications from Ontario post-secondary students. Students can apply for university or college scholarships in the amount of $1,500 and $1,000, respectively, to help them fund their tuition and other academic fees. In addition, students entering their first year of post-secondary studies directly from high school are eligible to apply for the J.O. Goodman Award (university) or the C. V. Hoar Award (college).

In order to be eligible for the scholarships, students must provide proof of acceptance into a recognized full-time program at an approved university or college, be 25 years of age or under as of Jan. 1, 2011, and be sponsored by an Ontario trucking company or trucking services/supply company that employs or contracts a parent of the applicant. In addition, students must submit a brief essay that answers a question about the trucking industry.

Applications for the J.O. Goodman and C.V. Hoar awards are assessed on criteria which include academic achievement, service to community, and extracurricular activities. Winners for these two awards are chosen by the Foundation’s Selection Committee.

The OTA Education Foundation college and university scholarships as well as the J.O. Goodman and C.V. Hoar awards are funded through donations that are received primarily from trucking and trucking-related companies.

To download an application package or to make a donation during the Foundation’s 100 Donations in 100 Days fundraising drive, visit www.ontruck.org/educationfoundation.
