National Scholarship Program

The COMTO National Scholarship Application is now open!

COMTO’s National Scholarship Program supports our strategic goal of ensuring the continuing legacy of minorities in transportation. COMTO annually awards multiple national academic scholarships, ranging from $500 to $6,000 each to minority graduate and undergraduate students from across the country. Scholarship awardees are represented in all academic backgrounds and are pursuing various careers in the transportation industry.

In addition to applying for COMTO's National Scholarships, please reach out to your local chapter for their scholarship opportunities. COMTO Chapters collectively award close to $500,000 annually in academic scholarships to local applicants.

We believe that diversity moves the nation.

We believe that the leadership of a massive industry that has the responsibility of transporting all people all the time should reflect the complex mosaic of those they serve. We believe that commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience moves us forward every day.
