IANA scholarships make a difference on students' bottom line

The Center for Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the UNT College of Business will be distributing $31,000 in scholarships this year to its most deserving students. Among those scholarships, $22,000 will be awarded through the generous support of the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), assisting a total of ten students.

IANA's mission is to promote the growth of efficient intermodal freight transportation through innovation, education and dialogue and their longstanding relationship with UNT and its students is a testament to their dedication in living out those words. In addition to scholarship support, IANA hosts an annual case competition, in which teams from schools around the country compete to solve complex intermodal issues. UNT students have had a track record of success nearly every year, placing in second during the 2018 competition.

Scholarships like IANA's help students pursue their academic interests without financial constraint. Among this year's logistics scholarship recipients, three international students were included, enabling them to qualify for in-state tuition—dramatically affecting their bottom line.
