MTA FOUNDATION

MTA Foundation's 2021-22 Vision Campaign!

HELP US REACH OUR $25,000 GOAL BEFORE THE END OF 2021!

We are in a race to recruit the best talent to the Minnesota trucking industry. By 2022, Minnesota is expected to fall short by 239,000 workers, based on historic rates of economic growth. This means the available labor pool for all industries is shrinking. 

The Foundation is actively exploring dynamic modern approaches for attracting people to truck driving and diesel tech jobs in Minnesota. Now is the time to donate so the Foundation can immediately execute on our plan once in place.

Thank you 2021-2022 Vision Campaign donors!

2021/2022 Scholarship Information

DONATIONS

​Last year the MTA disbursed $26,867 in scholarships for truck driving and truck technician students. These scholarships can sometimes mean the difference between a student continuing their training and dropping out due to lack of funds.

The video to the right shows just how much your contributions have helped students at Alexandria Technical and Community College pursue a career in trucking.

To donate specifically to truck driving or diesel technician funds, note in "donor comments" on the pledge form.

APPLICATIONS

If you have a student who is planning on going into a trucking-related career and would like to apply for a scholarship, the 2022 application will open up in early 2022.  When it is open, 

  1. Click the application button and login (or create an account if new)

  2. Enter the program key "MTA" to access your program in particular

  3. Start a new application for the 2022-23 year

Thank you 2020-21 Scholarship Donors!
