The LMCA Foundation was established in 2019 to fund education and research projects for the Laredo trucking industry. The mission of this is to work with LMCA member companies to fund educational and community service programs to enhance the understanding of and image of the Laredo trucking industry, with the ultimate goal of positioning trucking as the most vital and necessary
industry in Laredo.
Drivers, dock workers, mechanics, office personnel – there are thousands of people each day who contribute to a strong, efficient motor transportation industry in Laredo. Many of these workers are or have dependents pursuing higher education. The LMCA Scholarship Foundation eases the financial burden of their efforts by providing scholarships to LMCA member employees or their dependents and grandchildren.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of their academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need. The Foundation will provide financial assistance for college and trade school students. Scholarships may be used to meet such expenses as tuition, books, and housing. The LMCA Foundation is a non-profit educational, public relations, research and community service organization created by LMCA to promote the truck industry to the people of Laredo. LMCA represents more than 215 trucking companies and allied industries operating in Laredo.
Applicants must be high school juniors (graduating early) or seniors, and they must be an member of or dependent or grandchild of a member of the Laredo Motor Carriers Association and must be enrolled as a full-time student the upcoming year/semester (minimum of 12 hours).
A student seeking a scholarship should complete the application and send it to the LMCA Office along with a digital copy of a professional photograph, a certified copy of your transcript, and one to three letters of recommendation.
