Scholarships

John Martin Memorial Scholarship

In memory of our leader, John Martin, Bison Transport is offering scholarships to dependents of our employees and/or current employees who are working in a temporary, short-term capacity either as a summer student or as part of a co-op program and pursuing post-secondary education. John started with Bison in 1990 when we only had 18 tractors, yet he quickly became a mentor and inspirational leader. John was the catalyst for our rapid growth and for fostering a culture based on the aggressive pursuit of success.

The Bison Transport - John Martin Memorial Scholarship(s) are awarded annually to deserving students pursuing post-secondary education. Preference will be given to those disciplines with specific focus and relevance to the transportation industry (e.g. business administration, supply-chain management, marketing, heavy-equipment technicians, etc.).
