UNM participates in the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Minority Student Fellows Program and a local competition of the Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program. UNM has historically supported two or three students annually through the TRB Minority Student Fellows Program, which involves mentoring the students through a research paper, submitting to the TRB Annual Meeting, and attending the TRB Annual Meeting. UNM runs a local competition of the Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program which usually has five or six students participate. These programs encourage promising students to enter the transportation field.
