Allied Van Lines is one of the leading logistics companies in America specialized in household moving services including, but not limited to, packing, loading, transportation, unloading, unpacking, storage and assembly/disassembly.
They offer three scholarships, with a total value of $3,000 (awarded to three individuals, $1000 each) to high-school and undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
