Gordon Paesani Scholarship 2020

Dear Dean,

This is Scott Lee, Secretary/President-Elect for the Intelligent Transportation Society of the Midwest (ITS Midwest).  We are offering a $1,000 undergraduate scholarship this year, with our goal to celebrate the award with the chosen individual at our November Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky.  See www.itsmidwest.com for preliminary information on the annual meeting and more details about our organization.  We are the Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio chapter of ITS America.

The background and criteria for the award, as well as the application form and instructions on how to submit it are available at www.itsmidwest.com/scholarships/.  We are hopeful you can support us in distributing this such that students can apply.  Or please point me to additional contacts to help spread the word within your institutions.  The deadline for submitting applications is Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

The award is named after Gordon Paesani, one of my great mentors and a pioneer in freeway operations with focus on Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) and their components including incident response plans and adaptive ramp metering algorithms.
For more information on Gordon's achievements, please visit the page listed above.

We appreciate the assistance and looking forward to delivering to a deserving candidate.  We hope to grow our awards program in future years.

Thank You!
