2022 Scholarship Programme


Inviting the next generation of young, passionate leaders to become our 2022 scholars.

Are you passionate about public transport and interested in developing your career within the sector?

Do you wish to learn from industry experts to help you make those next steps?

Aged 40 or under and from a developing country?

Then the Laurent Dauby Scholarship Programme could be for you.

The scholarship is being offered to five people every year and it gives you the opportunity to learn and develop your career from industry experts in public transport.

Application deadline:  31st March 2022

I always wanted to do UITP courses, but with the devaluation of the Real I couldn’t make the necessary investment needed. The Scholarship offered me an opportunity to do the courses that I wanted and learn more about public transport.

Eligibility Criteria

Open to UITP Member and non-member organisations.

Five (5) places available for individuals from developing countries

To be eligible you must meet both of the following requirements.

Application deadline: 31st March 2022



Aside from the actual courses that we will take as part of the UITP Scholarship, I hope to learn from the experiences of my fellow scholars. Beyond the course requirements, I hope that we will be given a chance to meet each other in person and perhaps have an educational tour in a metropolitan area with a world-class public transport system.

Course Content

You will receive self-study reading materials, advice on programme selection, workshops and helpful insights along the way.

The Scholarship Programme includes two compulsory core courses and two elective courses during the 2022-2023 programme.

We will offer virtual classroom training sessions in the second edition, given the continuing global restrictions on movement. 

After completing the four courses by Spring 2023, you will participate a special graduation ceremony.

UITP and the training are some of the most beneficial and effective courses regarding public transport and its management. I would highly recommend it for people and organizations who want to advance their staff knowledge about public transport and its recent updates.

In Memory of Laurent Dauby

Paying tribute to a colleague and friend is not always an easy task; but it is certainly an important one for UITP.  

With the passing of our Director of Rail, Laurent Dauby in 2019, we knew that in time it would be important to honour the commitment Laurent gave to public transport throughout his career.  

Laurent was a passionate advocate of public transport and his industry expertise was focused on rail, with more than twenty years committed to advancing our sector.

To endure his legacy, UITP is continuing a Scholarship Programme in Laurent’s name, inviting the next generation of young, passionate leaders to become our 2022 scholars.

Laurent’s main focuses were within the rail sector and our training programmes with the UITP Academy, where he took great pleasure in sharing his expertise and being inspired by the next generation of public transport leaders.

Laurent was a respected colleague to many across the public transport sector, and a friend to even more. His commitment to advancing our industry was recognised by all of those who knew him. UITP believes that a legacy such as this deserves to be honoured with a commitment to collaborate with the next generation of public transport leaders. I encourage all of those who meet the criteria to apply for what I know will be a rich and rewarding experience.”
