Drivers, dock workers, mechanics, office personnel and other dedicated moving industry employees are among the thousands of people each day who contribute to a strong, efficient moving industry in Indiana.

Many of these workers are or have dependents who are pursuing studies toward a higher education. The Indiana Movers Association provides scholarship assistance to help some of these students in their higher education efforts by providing financial aid. The funds are available through the application process to Indiana Movers Association (IMA) member company employees or their dependents. Recipients will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, community involvement and financial need. The Fund will provide financial assistance for college and trade school students. These funds may be used to meet such expenses as tuition, books, and housing.

The IMA Scholarship Program is funded by IMA financial reserves, consisting of dues and other financial resources as received from member movers for membership and other related activities. This program has been specifically structured to support higher education among moving family members who are part of the IMA.

This program will not be active during the 2014-15 academic year as your association attempts to rebuild its financial base and bring value to other services. The board will review this program in the spring of 2015 to determine if we can reinstitute offering scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year.
