Educational Scholarship

Founder and CEO, Abram Harris feels that continued education is important and that the cost of going to school shouldn't be an excuse not to go. Each year Transportation Bull takes a percentage of all billable invoices along with additional contributions from it's customers and designates it as Scholarship Moneys to award as scholarship money for school expenses.

Very few strings attached

Unlike most scholarship programs, the Transportation Bull Scholarship comes with very few strings attached. We DO NOT ask that you commit to a career in trucking, logistics, mechanics, farming, or any other specific field or major. All we ask is that you use our scholarship funds for school related expenses.

Any School Will Do

Students in low household income situations are encouraged to apply regardless of the type of school they want to attend;  University, College, Trade Schools, Institutes in any field or major,  that you desire.
