At the national level, NDTA bestows tens of thousands of dollars every year to college students pursuing the study of logistics, transportation, supply chain, physical distribution, passenger travel services, and related fields. NDTA chapters around the country also independently provide significant scholarship funds for deserving students. “Education has always been an essential element of NDTA’s  mission,” said NDTA’s president, retired Vice Adm. William Brown. “Everywhere you look, our nation’s economy is bolstered by strong logistics capabilities and transportation of people and cargo.  We are very proud to support the education of our future leaders in these fields.”
