Scholarships Available for Executive Training for Oregon-Certified DBE Firms
Funding is available to help pay tuition costs for a limited number of Oregon DBE firms to participate in this year’s Minority Business Executive Program at University of Washington’s Foster School of Business in Seattle, Washington, June 14–19, 2015.
The intensive program focuses on a variety of subjects that are critical to business success including finance and accounting, leadership, brand and marketing strategy, strategic thinking, and human resource management.
The Oregon Department of Transportation will sponsor a limited number of Oregon DBE firms to participate in the training. Selected recipients will receive their tuition costs paid in full ($4,250 value). To apply for an ODOT scholarship please submit your company name, participant name, phone and email address to OCRINFOREQUEST@odot.state.or.us by May 1, 2015. A third party firm will review the interested companies, interview the person who would like to attend, and create a short list of firms they recommend.
ODOT will notify and post the recipients on their website by May 15, 2015.
