Due May 29, Dec 1 and Aug 1 for internships the following semester
(Dates subject to change at the discretion of the CTEDD Director and/or Program Manager).
This scholarship is designed to promote interest in working in the transportation field upon graduation, and to encourage students to intern with agencies that might be unable to pay interns for their time. Currently enrolled students at one of CTEDD's five consortium universities may apply for this scholarship if they have been selected for an internship and require assistance with living expenses during its duration. CTEDD is particularly interested in supporting unpaid internships. Internship hours and salary, as well as location-related expenses, will be taken into consideration in selection decisions.
Essential elements in selection include the description of the internship and its relevancy both to the student's career plans and CTEDD's six focus areas (See below).
Special consideration will be given for internships with agencies of professional prominence, as well as nonprofits and public agencies engaged in noteworthy work in transportation equity and policy. CTEDD will provide a minimum of $500 for sufficiently outstanding students, if the selection committee identifies any in the given cycle. CTEDD encourages students who have been selected for an internship at a private transportation employer, consultant, government agency, MPO, transportation nonprofit and related employers to apply. Both financial need and academic merit will be taken into consideration when selecting awardees, including whether the internship is paid or unpaid.
The selection panel may decline to make an award in a given category in a given year, if it does not consider any of the nominations to be sufficiently outstanding.
The winners will have their names placed on a plaque that will be displayed at CTEDD's offices at UT-Arlington.
