Dear Applicants,

The Transportation Club of Seattle has been actively involved in the Pacific Northwest’s transportation industry
since 1910, working to develop this vital and exciting industry that has been a key factor in the region’s growth
and success.

Our Scholarship program has been developed to encourage interest in the transportation industry with the goal of
developing the next generation of transportation professionals.  Successful applicants will possess strong
academic skills and an interest in developing knowledge and skills related to transportation industry.
We encourage you to look further into this ancient yet ever evolving industry by taking the opportunity to visit with
us and apply for our Club’s Scholarship Program.

I look forward to congratulating each scholarship recipient in person at our annual scholarship awards luncheon.

Best Regards,

Ian McKillop
