Vocational & Academic Scholarships

Since the inception of this program, over 245 scholarships totaling more than $175,000 have been distributed to deserving applicants. Annual grants of $500 to $2000 for academic and vocational scholarships will be awarded by the Washington Trucking Associations to eligible students who are related to an employee of a current WTA member. The scholarship fund is sponsored by the Suppliers Conference of the Association. All proceeds from the Frank Riordan Memorial Golf Tournament and the WTA Eastside Golf Classic are donated to this scholarship fund.
