Each year, the American Truck Historical Society recognizes outstanding students who intend to further their education at an accredited college or university or a certified vocational or technical school. Named for a dedicated, long-time ATHS member, the George Schroyer Memorial Scholarship Fund seeks to help students of all ages reduce the financial burden of higher education. Open only to the families of ATHS members, this fund currently provides two $3,000 scholarships annually. In addition, Cummins generously sponsors a $3,000 scholarship. It is the sincere gratitude of the Board of Directors to Cummins and all members who have contributed to the educational fund, allowing ATHS to increase the number of scholars awarded and the funding awarded. Increased scholarships and funds mean more students will find higher education within their reach.
