Feb 1, 2008 12:00 PM
The University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH), in cooperation with the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) of the American Trucking Associations and its Professional Technician Development Committee (PTDC), has created a scholarship for students pursuing a degree in the truck equipment and maintenance field.
This tuition-only only scholarship at UNOH in Lima OH is provided for students working toward a degree in auto diesel technology or a bachelor's degree in specialized studies, with a minor in automotive aftermarket management. The scholarship applicant must be a TMC family member or sponsored by a TMC member.
UNOH started the first automotive and diesel program in Ohio in 1973. Since 1989, the university has graduated 2,969 students with diesel technology-related degrees, including: 931 automotive/diesel, 1,342 diesel, 868 automotive/diesel associates, and 696 diesel associate degrees.
This is the second school to offer a scholarship in conjunction with TMC and the PTDC since the committee's founding three years ago. Wyo-Tech has been a charter donor of technician scholarships, providing two scholarships yearly for its Blairsville PA and Laramie WY campuses.
