Drive Logistics Announces Scholarship Recipients

To be chosen, students must have at least a 2.8 GPA, minor in Entrepreneurship and attend the University of North Florida  

Giving back to the community through charitable giving is a pivotal aspect of Drive Logistics' company culture. 

Drive Logistics partnered with the University of North Florida (UNF) to promote the future generation of entrepreneurs. Annually, our company rewards up and coming entrepreneurs with scholarship dollars to help them achieve their goals of higher education and inspire these students to become agents of profound change.

"We targeted students of entrepreneurship at UNF because they share the same passion of our truckers and the Drive Logistics team,” Founder Michael O’Leary said. “We hope one day these graduates will find ways to elevate other entrepreneurs in every industry and walk of life."
