The NRC awards scholarships each year to provide higher-education tuition assistance for children or grandchildren of employees of NRC member companies. Applicants must be enrolled as full-time students at an accredited two-year college offering an associate degree or an accredited four-year college or university offering a bachelor’s degree.

“The NRC has awarded more than $200,000 in tuition assistance to the children and grandchildren of NRC members since the awards were started in 2013,” says Joe Daloisio, Track Division Manager at Railroad Construction Co. and former Chairman of the NRC Scholarship Committee. “It is really gratifying to invest in the futures of these promising students and to consistently hear how much they appreciate this assistance.”

The NRC is a U.S. trade association that advances the mutual interests of railway contractors and suppliers who construct, maintain and supply railroads and rail-transit lines. Founded in 1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government legislators and policy makers. Together we work to create a positive business climate and to make railway construction and maintenance safer and more efficient.
