Mission: The Landstar Scholarship Fund was formed for the purpose of granting college scholarships to the children of business capacity owners with Landstar System, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries. Business capacity owners are not employees of the Landstar System; rather they are small business owners and independent operators of sales facilities and equipment serving Landstar. Accordingly, the Landstar Scholarship Fund seeks to foster educational opportunities for the children of the business capacity owners and their employees. Recently, the program has been expanded to include the children of employees of the Landstar affiliated companies. The awards are based on academic merit and/or financial need.
