TrainND Foundation Announces $8,000 in CDL Training Scholarships to Empower Local Talent

Posted: May 03 2024


WILLISTON, ND – TrainND Foundation is thrilled to unveil two $4,000 CDL Training Scholarships aimed at supporting individuals in pursuing a career in the transportation industry. One scholarship is open to the public, while the other is exclusively for graduates of Williams County, reflecting the foundation's commitment to investing in local talent. These scholarships apply to TrainND's comprehensive 4-week CDL Training classes offered at multiple locations, including Williston, Dickinson, and Minot, as well as the Fast Track CDL Training program.

Starting May 1st, aspiring CDL professionals can apply for these scholarships until May 31st, with notifications of selection scheduled for June 21st. The TrainND Foundation's goal is to make funds accessible to those who may not qualify for other forms of assistance. Applicants are required to apply for Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) scholarships and/or Veteran’s Benefits before applying for TrainND Foundation scholarships. If applicants receive WIOA scholarships or Veteran’s Benefits, they are ineligible for TrainND Foundation scholarships.

"These scholarships represent our commitment to supporting individuals who are passionate about pursuing a career in the transportation industry," said Kenley Nebeker, Executive Director of TrainND Northwest. "We encourage applicants to take advantage of this opportunity and apply, ensuring they have the necessary resources to achieve their career goals."

The $4,000 CDL Training Scholarship covers a portion of the course fees, requiring recipients to pay a 10% deposit at registration and the remaining balance two weeks before the class start date. Applicants can cancel registration for a full refund or transfer to another class more than two weeks before the start date. For assistance with applying for WIOA funding, applicants are encouraged to contact their local job service or email

TrainND Foundation remains dedicated to fostering workforce development and providing accessible pathways for individuals to enter high-demand industries. For more information about the CDL Training Scholarships or to apply, visit or contact Lindsee Reynen at 701-713-3782 or
