Support the Rail Transportation Program

Rail Transportation Program General Support

The Michigan Tech Rail Transportation Program provides an introduction to the rail industry to students from the youngest K-12 grades through high school, and on to both undergraduate and graduate university programs. We offer a Minor in Rail Transportation to students in any discipline at the university, customizing their program to best meet industry needs within their discipline. Support includes travel funds for high school students to go to Tracks to the Future host sites.

Rail Transportation Program Scholarship Fund

RTP supports students through generous donations from industry partners, Michigan Tech alumni, and friends. All funds donated here are tax deductible, and will be distributed to students interested in the rail industry.
