ASLRRA is awarding $24,000 in scholarships to employees of small railroads, thanks to two generous donations from retired former board member Doug Golden, through the Douglas Golden-Mary Cullen Charitable Fund.
Scholarships of up to $1,200 each are available to employees of small railroads, defined as those earning $10 Million or less in annual revenues. Scholarships may be used for industry-specific training that will help improve railroad safety & compliance practices and enhance overall operations. Eligible topics include: track, bridge, and signal inspection & maintenance; locomotive and freight car inspection & maintenance; regulatory/compliance training; and, railroad safety and operations training.
A portion of the scholarship funds have been set aside to support employees of railroads in the Southern and Eastern Regions of the U.S. Scholarships are awarded to qualified candidates on a rolling basis throughout the year. To apply, please complete this form and attach requested materials and documentation. Applicants will be contacted by an ASLRRA representative if additional information is required and once an award decision is made.
