ITE Diversity Scholars Program
ITE International is offering a brand new scholarship program to promote diversity and equity in the transportation industry. Diversity in transportation is critical as practitioners seek to fully understand the transportation needs of various communities. The four cornerstones to this program are as follows:
Financial support (total of up to $20,000 in scholarship support: up to $4000 annually per student for up to 5 years of undergraduate enrollment)
