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.
I am really proud to have followed in my father’s footsteps who shaped and engrained in me the importance of the NRC and getting involved. (The NRC) through friendships and dialogue with fellow competitors, relationships with the supply community, and with a vision that private railroad contractors could and would have a seat at the table when it came to building and maintaining our country’s railroad infrastructure … and that we could and would do it safely, efficiently, profitably, and of the highest quality.
