Scholarships for PASS Training & GTA Conference

Georgia DOT's Transit Program has set aside funding to provide financial assistance for approved Section 5311 Georgia subrecipients to attend the annual Georgia Transit Association (GTA) conference. The conference will be held on December 4 - 6 at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

Rural Transportation Assistance Program (RTAP) Scholarship

The purpose of the RTAP Scholarship program is to encourage professional development of rural transportation staff members by offsetting a portion of the expenses. Each scholarship is capped at $1,000 per attendee. The scholarship may not cover the entire cost, but it will substantially reduce the financial impact on 5311 systems.

Passenger Assistance, Safety and Sensitivity (PASS) Training Scholarship

Scholarships will also be offered for 5311 Public Transit Operators to attend PASS Training.  This is a comprehensive certification training course developed by the Community Transportation Association of America. The scholarship is capped at $200 per attendee.

How to Apply

Please complete the application along with a transmittal letter signed by the authorized subrecipient representative. The transmittal letter should describe the proposed attendee’s job responsibilities supporting the transit program, anticipated benefits from attending the GTA conference, budgetary constraints, and any other information supporting the scholarship application. 

NOTE: Only one representative from each rural transit system may apply for each of the training opportunity. If a representative would like to attend both trainings, please submit two separate applications for each individual scholarship. In the event applications exceed available RTAP funding, priority will be given to first-time attendees of the GTA Conference.

Deadline

The deadline to submit the transmittal letter and completed scholarship application is November 13, 2019.
