Shell, HDCC dish out $12Gs in techie scholarships

CALGARY – Shell Canada and the Heavy Duty Distributor Council of Canada are teaming up to battle the shortage of technical workers in the trucking industry by offering the Heavy Duty Technician Scholarship.

The intent is to provide financial assistance to Canadian students in a transport-related program to support the next generation of skilled workers.

Shell and HDCC, a non-profit corporation serving the heavy-duty after market, will provide six regional scholarships of $2,000 each.

Students enrolled full-time and in their last year in a program or an apprenticeship relating to the field of Heavy Duty equipment, focusing in road transport are eligible to apply. The recipients will be chosen based on their academic merit, financial need and their commitment to contributing to the future success of the trucking industry.

“Shell is helping today’s students keep tomorrow’s fleet on the road,” said Mark Reed, director of marketing, Shell Lubricants Canada. “The scholarship is the only one of its kind in the Canadian transport industry, and we are excited that it has doubled this year to $2,000 to assist in offsetting the financial challenge students face pursuing a career in road transport.”
