  • The Atlanta Maritime Association recently launched its first annual scholarship to the Georgia Southern University Logistics & Intermodal Transportation (LIT) program.

The $1000 scholarship funds, sent directly to the University's Foundation, will be awarded to an LIT student for the 2009-2010 academic year. The winner will be selected this spring by the University's Logistics faculty, along with fellow LIT majors receiving scholarships from other industry organizations.

AMA will award the scholarship funds to Georgia Southern's Logistics & Intermodal Transporation program at the end of each calendar year. The scholarship is primarily funded by the 50/50 drawings present at our event registration desks.
