Summer Program: National Summer Transportation Institute at Ferris State University

Good morning. I have been in contact with James Jackson from Michigan Department of Transportation. Please pass this email on to parents/people you think would be interested in the program for their youth.

He is recruiting Flint area high school students (age 14-17) to participate in a week long program sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration, the Michigan Department of Transportation and Ferris State University.

The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) is a one week residential program designed for students to explore careers in the transportation industry. There is no cost for the student campers as this camp is offered through a MDOT and FWA grant.

If interested, email James Jackson,, as soon as possible to secure your spot in the program.
