The Matthew J. Huber Award for Excellence in Transportation Research and Education is given to University of Minnesota graduate students demonstrating outstanding academic achievement in engineering, science, and technology fields. The award is named in honor of the late Professor Emeritus Matthew J. Huber in recognition of his long and valuable contribution to the teaching and study of transportation.
As a part of an effort to support students in transportation, CTS and the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Institute provide funding for selected students to attend the national Transportation Research Board (TRB) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. held in January of each year.
Students selected will each receive up to $1,000 for conference expenses, including travel. Upon completion of the conference, students are required to submit brief summaries of sessions they attended.
Faculty will nominate students based upon the following criteria: transportation-related degrees/course work and internships completed, transportation research conducted, and transportation-related papers presented and/or published.

Adams Award for Excellence in Transportation Research and Education is given to University of Minnesota graduate students demonstrating outstanding academic achievement in policy and planning fields.
