      Apply for the Rail~Volution Bay Area Scholarship

      Every year Rail~Volution brings together over 1,000 attendees and speakers
      from across the country to share their experience and lessons learned in
      building livable communities with transit. Rail~Volution is a conference
      for passionate practitioners -- people from all perspectives who believe
      strongly in the role of land use and transit as equal partners in the
      quest for greater livability and greater communities. Rail~Volution will
      include over 80 different sessions, workshops, mobile tours, and
      networking receptions.

      The Bay Area RV Steering Committee, who coordinated local programs for
      Rail~Volution held in San Francisco last year, is offering targeted
      scholarships to attend Rail~Volution 2009 in Boston (October 29 to
      November 1). Bay Area government (local, regional, transit or elected)
      officials and advocates working together to build livable communities near
      transit are invited to apply to this program.

      Program Guidelines

      Applicants must apply to the program as partners working on a
      transit-oriented development (TOD) site in the Bay Area (one local
      leader/advocate AND one government staff/elected). Scholarship recipients
      are required to attend 1 or 2 networking sessions with fellow scholarship
      recipients during and/or after the conference. The dates will be finalized
      after scholarships are awarded.

      Award

      If selected, each scholarship recipient would be awarded with:
      - Travel reimbursement for air travel only (up to $600/person);
      - Waived registration ($425 value); and
      - Provision of homestay placement in Boston

      Check out the application instructions for the Bay Area Scholarship
      Program at http://sites.google.com/a/transformca.org/railvolution/. The
      deadline to apply is Friday, September 4.
