Choptank Transport, a third-party logistics company headquartered in Preston, Maryland, is proud to announce that Gregory Gelmann is the recipient of the University of Maryland’s Choptank Transport Business Scholarship award for 2018. 


Gelmann is a sophomore and although he has not declared his major, he has indicated that his interests lie in either business management, supply chain or finance. The Elkton, Maryland, native is an Eagle Scout and believes that hard work and perseverance is the only way to get where you want to go. “I’ve adopted a mindset of sticking with things, even if they don’t come easily, and giving it everything I have. This belief is something that has translated into my school work.”


The scholarship hopes to further the education of local students who otherwise might not have the opportunity.  “Maryland’s ability to produce talented business graduates has given us many qualified associates at Choptank,” explains President and CEO, Geoff Turner.  “We’re proud to support the University and hope this scholarship will help attract students to our industry.”


The scholarship is available to any University of Maryland undergraduate student who attends the Robert H. Smith School of Business. The goal of the scholarship is to provide aid to business students interested in future employment opportunities, including, but not limited to, the field of transportation and third-party logistics.  Outsourced logistics is a growing field that provides valuable solutions to both manufacturers and carriers.


The scholarship requires students to reapply every year and is available for students pursuing any business major.   The application process begins in mid-March (spring break) through the last week of classes in early May.  For more information, go to
