  • Abstract:
    Since the UTC Scholarship program began in the spring of 2005 and continues today on the S&T campus, numerous female students

    have benefitted tremendously from this source of financial aid. The program began in the first few years with 15-30 awards, and has

    now progressed to over 130 per year. Approximately 175 scholarship recipients have graduated since the inception of the program,

    and of those 45% have been employed in transportation-related industries. In addition, the female enrollments in several

    transportation-related majors have increased greatly since the program’s inception. Examples of these increases include: Civil

    Engineering from 64 to100, Mechanical engineering from 55 to 96, and Architectural engineering from 35 to 63. The program has

    established a priority awarding guidelines based on a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, and the plans of the recipient to major in a

    transportation-related field. With these guidelines will also come the reporting of the final outcomes- the number of students

    participating in the program who are finding permanent, summer, or co-op related employment in a transportation-related field. This

    will be requested of students when they are initially awarded the scholarship, and as they progress with each scholarship renewal.

    This scholarship program in the past year has been a tremendous help in increasing female enrollment on campus to help set the all-time record of 1,839 total female enrollment for the academic year. We are also happy to report that these scholarships help with

    retention and graduation rates for women, as our 1st

    -2nd year retention rates have been in the 88%-92% range in the years since the

    scholarships were first given, and the 6-year graduation rates have increased from 67% to 74% in that same time frame.
