November 14 - December 14, 2018
National Scholarship requirements and available scholarships will be listed in October 2019. Some scholarships may be awarded twice.
Books are most effective when they are relevant to children’s lives, but our current inventory of culturally diverse books is not nearly sufficient to meet the need of the wide diversity of children and families we serve. To bridge the gap between the need for culturally diverse books and the lack of availability, we are launching “A Story Like Mine.” Your support of this project helps us make more culturally diverse books available for all of the children we serve.
COMTO's National Scholarship Program supports our strategic goal of ensuring the continuing legacy of minorities in transportation. COMTO awards $100,000 annually in national academic scholarships to minority graduate and undergraduate students from across the country. Scholarship awardees are represented in all academic backgrounds and pursuing various careers in the transportation industry.
COMTO Chapters collectively award close to $500,000 annually in academic scholarships to local applicants.
The Oregon/SW Washington local chapter has collected over 800 books for the Portland area Children's Book Bank Since starting this campaign in 2015... Please help continue this effort by joining us in November for our annual book harvast! All children's books are welcome, culturally diverse books highly desired.
