BURLINGTON, Ont. — Shell Canada and the Heavy Duty Distributor Council of Canada (HDDC) are once again offering their Heavy Duty Technician Scholarship.

Officials say the purpose of the scholarship program is to provide assistance to students enrolled in heavy-duty technical post-secondary studies.

“Shell is helping today’s students keep tomorrow’s fleets on the road,” said Chris Guerrero, global brand manager for Shell Rotella. “With this scholarship we’re pleased to help offset the financial challenges students face in pursuit of a career in road transport.”

Shell and the HDDC, a non-profit corporation serving the heavy-duty aftermarket, will provide six regional scholarships of $2,500 each. Students enrolled full-time and in their last year in a program or an apprenticeship relating to the field of heavy-duty equipment, focusing in road transport, are eligible to apply for the scholarship. The recipients will be chosen based on their academic merit, financial need, their reply to an essay question and their commitment to contributing to the future success of the trucking industry.

One student will be selected for a scholarship from each of the following regions:

-British Columbia                               
– Alberta/Northwest Territories/Yukon
– Ontario
– Quebec
– Saskatchewan/Manitoba
– Atlantic Provinces

The application deadline is Nov. 30. For more information, click here.
