The National Defense Transportation Association Foundation carries out the association’s charter to conduct and assist programs of transportation education, research and development. A volunteer Board of Trustees supervises the Foundation’s activities.
The Foundation is funded by voluntary donations, which 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 unrelated to the Foundation.
The Foundation annually awards scholarship money to high school or college students pursuing an education in logistics, transportation, or passenger travel. Three scholarship programs are available to NDTA members and their financial dependents pursuing the study of logistics, transportation, supply chain, physical distribution, or passenger travel services:
- Academic Scholarship Program A is for currently enrolled college students
- Academic Scholarship Program B is for soon-to-be high school graduates, accepted at an accredited institution
- Academic Scholarship Program C is for currently enrolled, distance learning college students
- Applications are due by June 1st each year to Jim Veditz via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org
