Each year, the American Truck Historical Society recognizes outstanding students who intend to further their education at an accredited college or university or a certified vocational or technical school. Named for a dedicated, long-time ATHS member, the George Schroyer Memorial Scholarship Fund seeks to help students of all ages reduce the financial burden of higher education. Open only to the families of ATHS members, this fund currently provides two $1,000 scholarships annually. It is the sincere hope of the Board of Directors, as additional donations to the fund are made, ATHS will be able to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year and broaden the eligibility requirements. Increased funds means more students will find higher education within their reach.
Students must attend regular classes, maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and be a family member (child, stepchild, or grandchild) of a current ATHS member in good standing for two years. Preference will be given to applicants pursuing positions in the trucking or transportation industry.
Applications will be accepted beginning in December each year with a deadline of May 15. The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation manages the application and selection process on behalf of ATHS. Please follow the link below to learn more and to apply.
