Rotella & HDDC Heavy Duty Technician Scholarship

Understanding that skilled workers are the key to a thriving road transport industry, Shell Canada and the Heavy Duty Distributor Council of Canada (HDDC) are teaming up to help address the shortage of technical workers in the trucking industry by offering the Rotella & HDDC Heavy Duty Technician Scholarship. The intent is to provide financial assistance to Canadian students in a transport-related program to support the next generation of skilled workers.

Shell and the HDDC, a non-profit corporation serving the heavy-duty after market, will provide six regional scholarships of $2500 each. Students enrolled full-time and in their last year in a program or an apprenticeship relating to the field of Heavy Duty equipment, focusing in Road Transport are eligible to apply for the Rotella & HDDC Heavy Duty Technician Scholarship.

The recipients will be chosen based on their academic merit, financial need, their reply to an essay question and their commitment to contributing to the future success of the trucking industry. One student will be selected for a scholarship from each of the following regions:

  • British Columbia
  • Alberta/Northwest Territories/Yukon
  • Ontario
  • Quebec
  • Saskatchewan/Manitoba
  • Atlantic Provinces
  • The application deadline is November 30th, 2010.

“Shell is helping today’s students keep tomorrow’s fleets on the road,” said Ainsley Hébert, Direct Marketing Manager Fleets, Shell Canada. “The scholarship is the only one of its kind in the Canadian transport industry, and we are excited that the amount awarded has increased this year to $2500 to assist in offsetting the financial challenge faced by students pursuing a career in road transport.”
