Apologies for cross-posting…


Hi all,

I always get interesting research requests from the HRM department…


The La DOTD is looking for ways to recruit minority engineers. One idea that has come up is the possibility of offering some sort of tuition reduction, scholarship, fee waiver, etc. to students with the understanding that after graduation they would work for DOTD for a period of time.  Does anyone know of any DOT which has such a program in place, or who had tried such a program? Actually, it would be helpful to know if any governmental agency has this sort of program, aimed specifically at minority students.


Ultimately, those of you affiliated with a DOT, does your agency actively recruit minority engineers? If so, how do they go about it?


Thanks for any help or insight,
