The NRC’s Education Grant 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.
“The NRC, aside from being the voice and representation of the railroad contracting industry, provides many great benefits to its members. One such benefit is our annual tuition assistance or Scholarship program. Since 2013, the NRC has offered this program to eligible children and grandchildren of NRC member companies. This past year, we were able to provide assistance to (6) students totaling $33,000. It is an honor to be a part of this and is truly gratifying to be able to invest in the futures of these promising students and to consistently hear how much they appreciate it.”
