YPT SF Bay Transportation Research Board Travel Award

Award Summary

The Inaugural TRB Travel Award was launched at our kick-off event in January 2014. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) conference in Washington DC is one of the premier networking and professional development events for young transportation professionals. This year, YPT is offering two separate travel scholarships of $500 to offset travel, registration, or accommodation costs for you, our loyal members. We hope that this scholarship will enable more of our membership to attend this conference, which YPT nationally co-sponsors (via the TRB Young Members Council).

Terms & Conditions

  • To qualify for the award, members must opt in by October 17 to a raffle in the fall using this form.
  • Awardees agree to attend the YPT Leadership Meeting at the TRB conference.
  • Current board members are ineligible for the award.
  • Each member that opts in will be awarded a raffle ticket for each Eventbrite check-in at a YPT event between January 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014.
  • The raffle will be drawn during the YPT/NACTO Happy Hour on October 23, 2014.

  • YPT SF Bay will reimburse the winner within 14 days of receipt of satisfactory evidence.
