ALBANY, N.Y. — Zonar Systems has donated 10 scholarships for attendance to the 2009 National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Annual Summit, to be held in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 31 to Nov. 5.
NAPT said that each scholarship will cover the cost of one conference registration. Attendees will be responsible for all other expenses. Any NAPT member in good standing is encouraged to apply.
If applicants are not current members, Zonar will also cover the cost of NAPT membership. Any person who is currently employed by an organization that provides pupil transportation services is eligible to apply. Priority will be given to applicants who justify the scholarship as a determining factor in their ability to attend the summit.
A downloadable application for the scholarship is available on the NAPT Website, www.napt.org.
