SUPERIOR, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Transportation and Logistics Management and Supply Chain Management degree programs recently received funding support from the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA). Half of the award of $50,000 annually for three years will be used for student scholarships. The remainder will be used to support the Rail and Intermodal Summer Youth Camp, simulation technology, program development, student research projects and study trips.

“The Transportation and Logistics and Supply Chain Management students and faculty are very grateful for the honor of being an IANA Scholarship University,” said Richard Stewart, Transportation and Logistics Management professor. “The continued recognition by IANA is due to the excellent performance of the UWS students in intercollegiate completion, academics, internships, community service and working in the intermodal industry after graduation.”  

This marks the third round of funding from IANA, indicating strong ongoing support for the program from the intermodal freight transportation industry. To date, 30 scholarships have been awarded to UWS students through IANA’s support. This latest round of funding will enable the program to expand its scholarship offerings and introduce several new scholarships, including the Joni Casey Leadership Scholarship to be awarded to an outstanding female freshman student.

Enrollment in the Transportation and Logistics Management program has increased from 70 students to 100 in just the past three years. The degree offers students rigorous preparation for careers in the rapidly growing transportation and logistics industry.
