HSRC Scholarships

HSRC continually works to develop tomorrow’s transportation safety professionals by awarding scholarships and research assistantships to deserving students and by integrating students into our research work.

The Megan Cornog Memorial Highway Safety Scholarship

The Megan Cornog Memorial Highway Safety Scholarship is an annual $1,500 scholarship awarded to a student with an interest in transportation who is enrolled full-time in a graduate program, working toward a master’s degree, at any of the University of North Carolina system campuses.

Named in memory of HSRC staff member Megan Cornog, the purpose of the scholarship is to foster the education and professional development of graduate students with an interest in transportation related areas, including, but not limited to, engineering, driver behavior, city and regional planning, public health, and environmental issues.

A call for applications is issued each spring, and candidates for the scholarship are evaluated on a 500-1,000 word essay, as well as academic performance, career goals, extracurricular and professional activities, and work experience.

The 2023 application process is now closed.
