APTF 2016 Scholarship Applications Available

The American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) is now accepting scholarship applications for 2016.

APTF will award a minimum of 20 scholarships of at least $2,500 each to individuals enrolled in public transportation industry-related fields of study. Renewal applications for previous scholarship recipients are also available.

In addition, APTF is introducing two new named scholarships this year. The Valarie J. McCall Scholarship, given in honor of APTA’s 2016 chair, will be awarded to an applicant pursuing studies in urban transportation planning or public administration with a focus on transportation, and the Bombardier Transportation Scholarship will go to an applicant studying rail engineering with the intent to pursue a career in rail manufacturing or public transit.

College sophomores (30 hours or more satisfactorily completed), juniors, seniors and transit professionals seeking advanced degrees are eligible to apply.

The scholarship program supports the foundation’s mission to increase and retain the number of individuals choosing the public transit industry as a career. In 2015 the foundation awarded the highest single-year amount in its history, $110,000, to 32 scholars, allowing them the opportunity to advance their careers in transit.
