Lang Diesel Inc. this week announced its new TechUp ToolUp Scholarship & Tool Allowance Program for qualifying students interested in becoming a diesel mechanic.
LDI will purchase the standard toolbox and tools listed on the program’s recommended tool list, up to $10,000. For semester 2 – 4, LDI will pay up to 100 percent of student’s tuition depending on student’s GPA.
LDI also has the TechUp ToolUp Scholarship & Sign-On Allowance Program for those who are currently enrolled or have just graduated from a two-year diesel tech program. Students currently enrolled in a two-year diesel tech program may be eligible for the tuition portion of the program if student has not started the final semester of the two-year program. Student will receive a $6,000 sign-on allowance upon completion and graduation of the two-year diesel tech program.
In exchange for the scholarship and allowance programs, the recipient will agree to work at LDI for a minimum of 36 months. The scholarship money is contingent upon this agreement between the student and LDI. Students do have input into which store they would like to work, depending on availability.
There is also the possibility for students to work part-time while going to school. They can come and get hands-on experience in our shops and work directly with our experienced technicians before they graduate. This is subject to availability, and proximity.
