Con-Way recently awarded 40 new college scholarships and renewed 99 existing scholarships for children of company employees. This year, the scholarships totaled $134,450, including $94,550 in renewal awards; the students will use them when they go to school in the fall. Over the past 15 years, Con-Way has awarded more than $2.7 million in scholarships to 852 students.

Recipients of the awards are selected by the independent group Scholarship America, a national nonprofit student aid service organization. The new recipients are enrolled in four-year undergraduate and specialized technical school programs and are recognized for their exemplary academic achievement and strong extracurricular activities.

This year’s winners have selected a wide variety of academic majors including accounting, finance, business, education, engineering, foreign languages, journalism, medicine and political science.

Students who have a parent employed by a Con-Way company — including its major subsidiaries, Con-Way Freight, Menlo Worldwide and Con-Way Transportation — are eligible to apply after the parent’s third year of continuous employment. Awards may be renewed for as many as three years until a bachelor’s degree is earned.
