Founded in 1977, the Women's Transportation Seminar (WTS) was created through the efforts of 40 women involved in transportation in the Washington, DC, area who recognized that a mechanism was needed to enhance professional and personal advancement and to develop industry and government recognition of the increasing involvement of women in the field of transportation. WTS is now an international organization of more than 6,000 transportation professionals - both women and men - with 50 chapters representing cities and states in the United States, Canada and Great Britain.

WTS's vision is the transformation of the transportation industry through the global advancement of women. To facilitate that goal, the next generation of leaders must be fostered and supported in their pursuits. Our Scholarship Program is one way that we demonstrate support.

The WTS Central Virginia Chapter, on behalf of the WTS Foundation (WTSF), is please to announce that we are now soliciting applications for the following 2016-2017 Scholarships:

The Central Virginia Chapter also offers local Scholarship awards in the amount of $500.00 for each of the above Scholarships. Our Central Virginia Chapter also offers our Patsy G. Napier Future Transportation Leader Scholarship to High School Senior Girls in the amount of $500.00.

Please note that completed scholarship applications must be received by WTS Central Virginia Chapter by Tuesday, November 14, 2016.  Applications may be mailed or emailed to:
