The TransCore Link Logistics LinkScholar Program returns for its second year, helping those graduating high-school students affiliated with the Canadian transportation industry pursue post-secondary education.

The LinkScholar program provides two $2,500 scholarship awards that can be applied toward tuition fees at a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution. The mission of the program is to identify high-potential, young people who may benefit from financial assistance in order to achieve their educational and future career objectives.
