Data Collection Fund

Western District Data Collection Fund

In 2004, ITE Western District created a Data Collection Fund to encourage Student Chapter involvement with the profession. This program is specifically aimed at creating interest in transportation through practical activities and mentoring.

Purpose of Data Collection Fund

  • To generate relevant technical data in the West for transportation engineers and planners.
  • To facilitate ITE Student Chapter activity and student mentoring by transportation professionals.
  • To focus real world selection process and on practical, day-to-day, minor research in transportation engineering and planning.
  • To focus on the collection of basic data.
  • To provide funds to student chapters that may be used to offset travel costs for students to attend ITE meetings, which help them to better understand the transportation profession by meeting a wide range of working members.

Selection Process

Each year, the Student Endowment Fund supports up to four data collection projects. A Request for Proposals is issued in the fall, and selected student chapters are notified in January. Data collection projects can begin in the winter and must be completed by June 1 of the year.
