Two Bloustein MCRP candidates receive APTF scholarships

July 8, 2016

The American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) recently announced that Bloustein School Masters in City and Regional Planning (MCRP) students Golda Speyer and Kelly Glenn are the recipients of 2016 APTF Scholarships.

This marks the sixth straight year at least one Bloustein student has been awarded APTF scholarships; overall, eight Bloustein students have received scholarships in that time.

All member organizations of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) are given the opportunity to nominate and sponsor upper class or graduate level college students to receive APTF Scholarships awarded annually to assist with tuition costs or other educational expenses. Each summer the APTF awards scholarships of at least $2500 each for the following academic school year (fall semester) to individuals in public transportation industry-related fields of study.

Golda is the recipient of the Valarie J. McCall Scholarship, awarded to an applicant pursuing studies in urban transportation planning or public administration with a focus in transportation. Kelly is the recipient of an APTF Board Scholarship; recipients are selected based on demonstrated interest in the public transportation industry as a career, academic achievement, essay content and quality, financial need, and involvement in extracurricular citizenship and leadership activities.

The mission of the American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) is to increase and retain the number of young professionals entering the public transportation field as a career in order to sustain growth and improvement throughout the industry.
