When education and passion combine, amazing things happen. That’s just one of the many reasons C.H. Robinson helps fund educational opportunities through the C.H. Robinson Foundation Scholarship Program for contract carriers and employees. This is our sixth year of the program and I’m pleased to announce we’ve chosen this year’s contract carrier scholarship recipients.
2018 Scholarship Recipients
Each year, we choose recipients based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership, participation in school and community activities, work experience, career and educational goals, and unusual personal or family circumstances. This year, each student received $2,500 to apply toward undergraduate tuition costs—in any area of study—for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.
Below are the ten scholarship recipients for this year:
