2016 Scholarship Application is Now CLOSED.
Scholarship announcements will be the week of August 22nd.
Rail~Volution offers a limited number of scholarships each year to professionals working on transportation and land use issues with special consideration for nonprofits, citizen activists and transportation advocates. We invite diverse stakeholders to the Rail~Volution table, honoring what people of different races, nationalities, professional disciplines and geographic and economic backgrounds bring to our mission. We believe diversity promotes strength and embrace varied opinions and perspectives, recognizing that lively discussion fosters greater understanding, energy, creativity and momentum.
Scholarships awarded are for registration and transportation costs only. Rail~Volution does not provide lodging.
Rail~Volution does administer a homestay program providing opportunities for people from the region to host an out-of-state guest. In return, the host will receive a free registration to attend the conference. See “General Guidelines” below for more information.
If you are a local from the Bay Area you are only eligible for a registration scholarship.
Scholarship application closes August 11th. Awards will be announced the week of August 22.
