2020 HBCU Scholarship Awards Ceremony

The IBTTA Board of Directors Winter Meeting began with the HBCU Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. Three students, attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), were each recognized for winning one of the $5,000 scholarship awards funded by donations of IBTTA members. View the Awards Ceremony on the IBTTA YouTube page.


About the Scholarships

The IBTTA Foundation and the Task Force on Diversity, Social and Racial Inclusion recognize the importance of supporting higher education to strengthen our industry; and the necessity to provide more opportunities for mentorship and leadership in the transportation tolling industry. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage and support Black students enrolled at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who are pursuing academic degrees that can lead to a rewarding career in transportation. This scholarship reflects IBTTA's commitment to fostering diversity in the tolling industry. In 2020, through a competitive process, three $5,000 scholarships were awarded to students who submitted their applications by November 20, 2020. Awards were given before the end of the year.

In 2021, the HBCU scholarships have become part of the IBTTA Foundation Scholarship program.

Eligibility

The 2020 scholarships were awarded to students who were in an academic degree-granting program at an HBCU that is accredited by a nationally or regionally recognized accrediting agency, as defined by the United States Department of Education with respect to United States academic institutions, and as defined by the pertinent comparable body for academic institutions outside the United States.

The Details

In 2021, the HBCU scholarships have become part of the IBTTA Foundation Scholarship program. Visit the IBTTA Foundation Scholarship page for complete information.
