APTF Establishes Scholarship In Honor of Paul Larrousse

As APTA mourns the Nov. 14 passing of Paul J. Larrousse, the American ­Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) Board of Directors has approved establishing a scholarship in his honor.

The Paul J. Larrousse Scholarship will continue Larrousse’s legacy of supporting a more inclusive workforce and will promote awareness and acceptance of the LGBTQ community within the ­public transportation industry.

As director of the National Transit Institute in the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Larrousse was designated as a faculty fellow in 2003. In this role, he taught the graduate Transit Management and Planning course and the Transit Planning Studio. He supported several of his students as APTF scholars and helped them to increase their networking and understanding of the broader public transportation industry.

Larrousse was a longtime supporter of APTF and a Two-Star Diamond Fellow.To learn more about the scholarship, or to contribute, click here
