Institute of Transportation Engineers – Michigan Section
The ITE Michigan Section’s geographic area includes the entire state of Michigan. Our membership currently includes over 300 transportation professionals, students, and technical affiliates whom work/reside in Michigan. In general, the Michigan Section hosts technical sessions (February, March, June, October and December) where technical presentations are made to the broad transportation community. The section also hosts two golf outings per year. The May golf outing raises funds for the Michigan Section’s educational fund that distributes $12,000 per year in scholarship grants.
Student assistance for Michigan university students at Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Michigan Technological University and Western Michigan University has been ongoing since 1989. It consists of:
- Student Paper – Started in 1989 with one $100 winner. It has grown to a first place award of $500, and a second place award of $300.
- Scholarships – The first scholarship was awarded in 1992 to Martin Kane for $500. The Section now awards four, $3,000 scholarships, annually.
The money for all of this assistance comes from the Michigan Section Golf Tournament that is held annually in May, and through the generous donations of the Michigan Section members.
