The ABA Member Bus & Tour Operator scholarships awarded by the American Bus Association are open to full-time employees or the dependent children of full-time employees of ABA bus and tour member companies (in good standing).
- You must be a full-time employee or the dependent of a full-time employee of ABA member company in good standing.
- The eligible employee must have been employed by an ABA member company in good standing for at least six months as of January 1 in the year in which the scholarships are awarded and distributed.
- The winners or the parent or guardian of the winners must still be employed in the spring when the winners are selected.
- You must be a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student, and must have a declared major or course of study that is relevant to the transportation, travel, and tourism industries and hold a minimum GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Transportation, travel and tourism encompass a varying range of professions from accounting to hospitality management and everything in between. In other words, please apply rather than ruling yourself out because of your major. However, you will be required to submit a short essay on how your major or course of study is relevant to the transportation, travel and tourism industries.
Seven Motorcoach & Tour Operator Scholarships are awarded, in the amount of $5,000 each.
