I am writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity being offered to transportation professionals. The Eno Foundation is currently seeking candidates for the National Park Transportation Scholars Program.
Established in 2001, the National Park Transportation Scholars Program gives transportation specialists a unique opportunity for career development and public service. The Scholars Program places transportation professionals, as well as master's and doctoral candidates in the fields of transportation, engineering, and planning, in National Parks across the country to assist Park Service staff in developing transportation solutions that preserve valuable resources and enhance the visitor experience.
Assignments generally begin in early summer and last between 3 to 12 months. Scholars receive a stipend of up to $50,000 per year. Park projects involve transportation planning and analysis, coordination with local communities, environmental and traffic studies, and other transportation-related tasks. The program is made possible by Ford Motor Company, the National Park Foundation, the National Park Service, and the Eno Transportation Foundation.
The deadline for applications is February 28, 2007. If you are interested in applying, please visit www.enotrans.com for application material/instructions.
Feel free to pass along this information to your colleagues.
