The Nominations and Awards Committee annually solicits and recommends candidate(s) for ITS Tennessee scholarship(s). A new scholarship entitled “ITS TN Student Scholarship” is now available to students pursuing a education in a Intelligent Transportation or related field.
This scholarship assists those seeking to advance their skill set, through additional training and certiﬁcation courses, to better serve their organizations and the ITS industry in Tennessee. This scholarship amount is up to $1500 annual reimbursement for successfully being accepted to and scheduled in technical or certiﬁcation coursework. Proof of application and acceptance into the course will be required in any scholarship application, as well as proof of payment. This reimbursement is also available to members who have paid for certiﬁcation courses in the past 12 months, out of their own pocket (i.e. not paid by employer), to further their career and technical skills. Supporting documentation will be required.
It is expected that multiple individuals may apply and be awarded this scholarship money; however, if applicable, one individual may be reimbursed the full amount, based on ITS TN Board approval.
Applicants must describe their current role and reasoning for taking the certiﬁcation/technical class, as well as how it will improve themselves and their work in Tennessee.

classes. Examples of this include TTAP training, IMSA Signal Technician certiﬁcation, Fiber Optic certiﬁcation, etc.
