MCLEAN, Va. — One industry professional will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Orlando, Fla., next year to attend the 19th National Conference and Exhibition on Transporting Students with Disabilities and Preschoolers, according to Edupro Group, the conference sponsor.

Moreover, Edupro Group will match the scholarship by offering the recipient an opportunity to present at the following year’s conference. (The conference picks up expenses for presenters.)

Applications for American Logistics’ scholarship will be available beginning Thursday. The application process will close when 80 applications have been received, or no later than midnight on Oct. 21. To request the application, send an e-mail to [email protected]. The scholarship winner will be announced on or about Nov. 30.
