Support new HSRC Diversity Scholarship, encourage BIPOC undergraduate students in NC!
All contributions made to the UNC Highway Safety Research Center on March 30, 2021, will be dedicated to a new scholarship that aims to encourage Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in transportation safety.
The $5,000 HSRC Diversity Scholarship will be awarded to one student in NC each year. A call for applications will be issued each spring, and candidates will be evaluated on essay responses, as well as community involvement, leadership, academic performance, and career goals. Learn more at www.hsrc.unc.edu/scholarship/diversity.
Transportation is a broad field that includes professionals who work in multidisciplinary topic areas. It can only become more diverse and better reflect the communities we serve if more students, practitioners, and researchers from different backgrounds enter the profession. HSRC is invested in fostering this important change.
Thank you for your contribution and support to help make the transportation field more diverse, equitable, and inclusive, starting with undergraduate students in NC!
