A1 scholarship
A-1 Auto Transport is one of the largest USA-based transportation companies with offices in major cities and metropolitan areas around the world. Our services are available everywhere, including the upstate area of Spartanburg, Greenville, Cherokee, Union, Polk, and Rutherford counties. A-1 sponsors a competitive scholarship for students with an interest in the auto shipping industry. We are excited to report that our scholarship program is now available to eligible students in the upstate counties. To be eligible, a student must be enrolled at a college, university, or institute of trucking or logistics and must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. For consideration, you only need to write an essay about the auto transport industry in at least 1,000 words. 
To obtain additional information about this opportunity, and to read samples of winning essays, visit the website at A-1 Auto Transport. Topics can include types of vehicle shipping, new and innovative shipping ideas, or problems encountered in moving vintage trucks.

Scholarships will be awarded in the amounts of $250, $500 or $1,000 to the winners. Students must submit their essays to scholarships@a1autotransport.com along with their name, school name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. The deadline for essays is March 10 of each year, with scholarships to be awarded for the fall semester.

A-1 Auto Transport has a dedicated scholarship committee that looks forward to reviewing the entries and choosing the scholarship recipients. The committee will check for plagiarism and originality, as well as style and relevance to the auto shipping industry. Essays must not be found published anywhere else online. At the end of March, winning essays will be announced on the A-1 website. All winners are also notified by email. Once the scholarship decisions are made, scholarship funds will be sent directly to the student’s school’s financial office.
