Scholarships

The Traffic Club of Baltimore is a professional organization composed of members of the transportation/logistics profession and related businesses and services. One of the programs that the club undertakes is to provide scholarships to full time students of club members who have been accepted or who are presently attending a fully credited college or university and working towards a degree. To that end the club has empowered its Education Committee to create and implement a Scholarship Program. The objectives of the Scholarship Program are:

  1. To reward academic achievement.
  2. To promote interest in the transportation and logistics professions.
  3. To give consideration to the presentation skills of any applicant and to reward those with superior skills.
  4. To acknowledge the commitment of the applicant to the community through their extracurricular activities both on and off campus.

This program is intended to foster the promotion of the transportation profession; However, scholarships are awarded to students of any discipline. Full time students engaged in any field of study are encouraged to apply. The award of any scholarship is based solely upon materials submitted with the application form. Credits that go toward consideration of a scholarship include but are not limited to the following;

  1. Scholastic Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) which must be clearly indicated on your "Official Transcript". High School transcripts will be considered for those entering a college or university as a "Freshman".
  2. Written communication skills are required by this application.
  3. References: The student must provide three letters of recommendation for the scholarship from teachers, counselors, clergy or coaches, recommending the student for the scholarship.
  4. The sponsor of any student must be a member of the Traffic Club of Baltimore in good standing for at least three consecutive years.
