Student Travel Assistance Program

A portion of TTI’s ATLAS Center funds was allocated to deserving graduate or undergraduate students to support travel to attend the Texas Traffic Safety Conference and TexITE meetings. Students benefit both from networking opportunities with practicing safety professionals and industry employers and from practicing their presentation skills in a professional setting.

The ATLAS Center helped students who are members of the Texas A&M ITE student chapter travel to the Texas District of the Institute of Transportation Engineers conference in Austin, Texas.
