Kinedyne has launched its third annual Kinedyne Cares College Scholarship Program, which in 2011 will provide a $2,500 award to one applicant each from the Alabama and New Jersey state trucking associations. To enter, applicants must submit an entry form and write an essay, of 500 words or less, addressing the topic “How the trucking industry has had a positive impact on my life.”

To qualify, candidates must be members in good standing of the Alabama Trucking Association or New Jersey Motor Truck Association. Applicants also may be directly related to a member of either association. In addition, candidates currently must be enrolled in, or in the process of registering to attend, a college or university. The deadline for submission of entries is July 1. An online entry form is available at http://tinyurl.com/3d3mq87.

“We initiated this scholarship program three years ago to assist deserving families within the trucking industry,” says David Callahan, Kinedyne’s corporate marketing manager. “The program was well received, and we’re delighted to be in a position to continue providing support to the community and our industry.”

The Kinedyne Cares initiative was launched in 2008 as part of the company’s ongoing effort to give back to the trucking industry and drivers employed in the transportation sector. In the past several years, Kinedyne has awarded college scholarships to members and relatives of members of state trucking associations in Minnesota, Alabama, Virginia and Ohio.
