Back to Top Transportation Scholars Program
InTrans' Transportation Scholars program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation's University Transportation Center at Iowa State University (the Midwest Transportation Consortium). The program attracts high-quality students into transportation-related disciplines. ISU Transportation Scholars are required to work on research projects, take a semester seminar course, and participate in InTrans-sponsored student activities.
The following are the requirements for participation in the Transportation Scholars program:
One special feature of the Transportation Scholars program is the Tom Maze Transportation Seminar, presented weekly during the spring semester and featuring nationally and internationally-recognized speakers. The seminar has become an important feature of graduate transportation education at ISU and is broadcast real-time to students at the University of Northern Iowa and other sites via the Iowa Communications Network. The ICN allows viewers at remote sites to actively participate in the seminar.
A Transportation Scholars Conference is held every fall semester at ISU, during which students present research papers written for the previous spring semester's Transportation Seminar series. The papers are judged by an outside panel, and the author of the best paper is awarded a cash prize.

The seminar series, renamed in 2010 in honor of MTC founder Tom Maze, is a key part of MTC's Transportation Scholars Program. The most recent seminar's lineup is presented below. See the archives for earlier seminars' speakers.
All presentations are held Fridays at 11 a.m. in InTrans' Videoconference Room. Each seminar is also broadcast in real-time to students at the University of Iowa, the University of Northern Iowa and other sites in Missouri via Internet-based compressed videoconferencing technology.
