ROBERT H. PRINCE JR. SCHOLARSHIP
COMTO and AECOM have honored Robert H. Prince, Jr. for his dedication to the growth and development of emerging leaders in the transit industry by creating the Robert H. Prince Jr. Scholarship for participation in Eno Foundation's Transit Senior Executive (TSE) Program. Mr. Prince has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the education of the transit workforce in his roles as a leader in the public and private sectors of the transportation industry, in his volunteer commitment to youth in Boston, and as a board member of COMTO and the American Public Transportation Foundation (APTA).
The TSE Program is a year-long leadership development program centered on an intensive week-long seminar held in Washington, DC. The TSE Program is designed for top transit executives to participate in an intensive and confidential forum on strategic management, leadership, and critical emerging industry issues. In addition to the four program instructors, participants learn from more than a dozen guest lecturers who are current or former transit general managers, senior Federal officials, or senior private sector staff.
The Robert H. Prince Scholarship will be awarded to a senior leader in the transit industry who currently reports directly to the General Manager or CEO. The recipient should have a career goal to become a transit General Manager or CEO in a rural, small urban, or urban transit agency. Preference is given to current COMTO members. The winner of the Robert H. Prince Scholarship also receives a registration waiver and travel support to the COMTO National Meeting & Training Conference, and is encouraged to participate in the COMTO Leadership Institute.
The Robert H. Prince Scholarship award includes TSE program fees, a registration waiver and travel support to COMTO's National Meeting and Training Conference, and is encouraged to participate in the COMTO Leadership Institute (CLI). Admission to the TSE Program is selective, and applicants must be nominated for consideration.
The in-person TSE course will take place February 26-March 3, 2017 in Washington, DC.
Applications and nomination forms must be submitted to Eno Foundation by December 9, 2016.
