About NDTA
The National Defense Transportation Association Foundation carries out the Association’s charter to support, conduct and assist programs of transportation education, scientific research and development. These activities are carried out in coordination with private, industrial, educational and government agencies. They are designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our distribution industry and enable it to meet national security needs.

The Academic Scholarship Program offered by the Foundation provides opportunities for college and graduating high school students majoring in supply-chain, transportation, logistics, information technology and related fields to gain scholarship awards and recognition.

A Board of Trustees, serving without salary, promotes and fosters the objectives and supervises the activities of the Foundation.

The Foundation is funded from voluntary contributions and donations are tax deductible under
Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Funds held by the Foundation cannot be used to meet operating expenses of the Association unrelated to the activities of the Foundation.

The NDTA Forum, Education and Professional Development Committee will determine what percentage of scholarship/tuition assistance funds available for a specific scholarship year will be allocated to the two merit scholarship programs.

NDTA scholarship/tuition assistance funds can only be disbursed to an academic institution on behalf of the successful applicant. If the institution is not known at the time an application is submitted, the successful applicant must submit documentation showing that he/she has in fact been accepted by an institution as a fulltime student, before disbursements can be made.
