A-1 Auto Transport is offering $1,000, $500 and $250 scholarships to students who win an essay contest on an auto transport topic. The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 10.


Scholarships are open to all nationalities and there are no fees to apply. The awards are offered on a continuous basis so they will be available for 2019 and beyond, according to a news release.


Applicants must be current full- or part-time students with any educational institution, university, driving school or trade school and have a GPA of 3.0.


The winner will be announced and emailed by the end of March 2019 and each following year. All award money will be sent directly to the financial aid office of the student’s school.

The deadline to apply is March 10.
