The Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) Columbus chapter will award scholarships for the upcoming 2023-2024 academic year to deserving students who express an interest in pursuing college studies/technical programs in a transportation related field. The scholarships seek to provide educational funding for underrepresented groups (African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian-Pacific and Subcontinent Asian Americans, and women), and the funds may be used for tuition, books, and/or room and board expenses.

About the organizer


Our mission is to ensure opportunities and maximum participation in the transportation industry for minority individuals, veterans, people with disabilities and certified MWDBE businesses through leadership training, professional development, scholarship and internship funding, political advocacy, partnership building and networking opportunities.


To build upon our 50-year continuous legacy of ensuring full access, while keeping pace with the rapidly evolving industry and anticipating future goals and accomplishments.


COMTO has thirty-four (34) chapters throughout the United States and Canada. Members include individuals, transportation agencies, academic institutions, industry non-profits and Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs). From highways and roads to mass transit systems; from subways to rail systems; and from port authorities to airports, COMTO members represent every facet of the transportation industry.

COMTO National History

Founded in 1971 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC, the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) was created to provide a forum for senior level minority professionals in the transportation industry. Since its inception, COMTO has continued to evolve to become the premier organization for the training, education, and professional development of minority transportation professionals. The true measure of how far COMTO has come is revealed by the talent, tenacity and accomplishments of the members who have joined forces to correct the inequities of the past and chart the direction of the future.
