IANA names Denver, Maryland universities as scholarship award recipients


The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) recently created a scholarship program to encourage freight transportation-related management development. The first recipients: the University of Denver’s Intermodal Transportation Institute (ITI) and University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business.

The association will provide both colleges $30,000 scholarships, which will be available to ITI graduate students and business school undergraduates in 2007. IANA selected ITI because of the institute’s intermodal graduate program that provides advanced business education for transportation industry professionals. The association chose the business school because it will launch a logistics, transportation and supply chain fellows program — which will include a focus on intermodalism — next year.

The scholarship program is part of IANA’s efforts to increase the understanding of intermodal transportation and support market-oriented academic programs, according to the association.
