ABA Diversity Scholarship
The ABA Diversity Scholarship focuses on broadening the number of traditionally under-represented groups in the management and operation ranks of the transportation, travel, and tourism industry.
Eligible candidates must have completed, at a minimum, their first year of college at an accredited university; must have a declared major or course of study relevant to the transportation, travel, and tourism industry; and must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
Winners are judged on their academic merit, character, leadership, financial need, and dedication to advancing the transportation, travel, and tourism industry. Candidates must use the space provided in the application to demonstrate their diversity (varying cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, nationality, minorities, age, race, or ethnicity) to evaluators. The ABA Foundation recognizes that diversity is essential in promoting understanding and mobilizing greater involvement in our industry. All applicants are notified of the competition results in May. An impartial selection committee of educators is responsible for ranking and choosing the winners.
