2020-2021 Landstar Scholarship Recipients

Congratulations to the newest recipients of the 2020-2021 Landstar Scholarship. The Landstar Scholarship Fund was established to recognize outstanding undergraduate achievement and civic involvement. Since 1995, Landstar has recognized and awarded 366 scholarships totaling more than $902,000.

An independent selection committee of professors from the University of North Florida (UNF) in Jacksonville, Fla. carefully evaluated 53 eligible applications this year and chose 13 of those applications to receive a Landstar Scholarship. This school year, 10 applicants will receive scholarships in the amount of $3,500 and three will receive a scholarship in the amount of $5,000.
