National Summer Transportation Institute

The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) Program is a transportation-focused career awareness initiative designed to introduce disadvantaged secondary school students to all modes of transportation-related careers, provide academic enhancement activities and encourage students to pursue transportation-related courses of study at the college/university level. Students typically spend 2-4 weeks on some of the most prominent college/university campuses in the state.

The NSTI Program was created to address future transportation workforce needs by ensuring that the transportation industry has a well-trained qualified and diversified workforce.

In 2018, Caltrans contracted with four colleges and held four programs. Of those four programs, forty students were able to participate in the National Flight Academy Program.
