The NRC is now accepting applications for its Education Grant Program. The Program awards an education grant to a college, university or technical school within the United States with a railway construction, railway engineering or construction management program. It is the only association grant program specific to the rail industry.
The Program was established to positively impact the future of the railroad and railroad construction and maintenance industry and to attract promising young people to the workforce by supporting an institution’s students and its education and research efforts.
The NRC welcomes grant applications from programs that provide or are looking to provide students with a foundation that would allow them to work successfully in the rail construction and maintenance contracting industry.
Railroad Day on the Hill is our opportunity to advocate for issues important to the industry. Personally, I look forward to this event each year because I truly believe it is essential for our perspective to be heard. I am continually amazed by the turnout, especially by our member companies. It is an honor to spend the day in Washington representing our industry, the railroads, Ames Construction and the NRC.
