Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the Landstar Scholarship Fund, announced during Landstar’s Agent Convention held in March in Orlando, Florida. 

The Landstar Scholarship Fund was established to recognize outstanding undergraduate achievement of children of Landstar employees. Since 1995, Landstar has recognized and awarded more than 260 scholarships to candidates who are enrolled in high school and plan on attending a 2 or 4 year college or university.

The scholarships are based on academic excellence, community service and extracurricular activities. To be eligible candidates must have successfully completed a minimum of 12 credit hours prior to the application deadline and must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

To date, Landstar has awarded more than $600,000 in scholarship money. Recipients were selected by an independent committee of professors from the University of North Florida. This year, the following 20 students were selected to receive $2,500 each for the 2015 school year:
