The Student Endowment Fund is proud to showcase and support this year’s student award winners! Congratulations to Alex Wang and Ruimin Lin for winning the Student Regional Travel Scholarship. We were happy to have you at the Annual Meeting this year and look forward to seeing you at future ones. UC Berkeley did a wonderful job creating and leading this year’s Kell Competition with the Portland Transit Game. Oregon State University won the Western District’s Traffic Bowl competition and did a great job representing the district at the International Traffic Bowl. With a focus on FUN (Food and drinks, Uniting with other organizations, and Networking) the University of Hawai’i won the Student Chapter Momentum Award. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish next year! And last but certainly not least, with 45 meetings, tripling their active membership, and working with two other schools to host this year’s Student Leadership Summit the winner of the Student Chapter Award is the University of Southern California! Congratulations to all of this year’s winners! These awards totaled $5,500 and were made possible thanks to the wonderful donors of the Student Endowment Fund.
