    grants for truck driving school: where to go?

    i couldnt really find what im looking for, but i was just wondering, where would be a good place to go for a grant to pay for most or all of my driving school? i really want to get going to school, and have a good one near me picked out. and its not a company sponcered school so i wont be any ones slave for a year..lol..

    ive been wanting to drive for a a while, and picked up a job just driving a cargo van, making deliveries, for a company called Rush. im doing it just to see how i like it, and i Still want to go ahead and drive a truck. ive even driven for over 20 hrs straight for this job, so i know what its like for the endurance part.

    but anyways, if any one could point me in the correct direction for grants, i would greatly appreciate it!

    thanx guys,

    Khori

    Oregon has a $2,000 grant for vets. It's called something like, Oregon Hire a Vet program. If anyone is interested, most schools' admins should know about.

    I sure don't. I'm only familiar with Oregon truck driving schools.
