DB Schenker Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

As today’s students enter our workforce, they are facing new challenges and opportunities never before imaginable. At DB Schenker, we recognize the contributions of these students and the important role that education plays in their development. We believe education is the key to success. The DB Schenker Scholarship Program gives us an opportunity to invest in the education of our employees’ children. As our children grow and use their knowledge to continually improve our society, it is easy to see that this is a wise investment.

The DB Schenker Scholarship Program is funded by DB Schenker and is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
