2023-2024 Landstar Scholarship Recipients

Pursuing a college degree is a little easier for nine new Landstar Scholarship recipients for the 2023-2024 academic year. The recipients’ names were revealed in April at Landstar’s annual Agent Convention.

Since 1995, Landstar has awarded 401 scholarships totaling more than $1 Million to the children of Landstar agents, BCOs and employees. The scholarship fund was established to recognize outstanding undergraduate achievement and civic involvement.

An independent selection committee of professors from the University of North Florida evaluated the applications and chose nine of those applicants to receive $5,000 each.
