Each year the WTS Greater Chicago Chapter honors exceptional young women as they pursue careers in the transportation industry. Our chapter offers six local scholarships for women seeking high school, junior college, undergraduate and graduate degrees. These scholarships include:

·       Sharon D. Banks Memorial Scholarship for Undergraduates

·       Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates

·       Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship for Graduates

·       Leadership Legacy Scholarship for Graduates

·       Transportation YOU High School Scholarship

·       Junior College Scholarship

The submission period for the 2015-2016 scholarship season is now closed. Check back in Fall 2016 for next year’s applications. 

Winners of the scholarships have been selected for 2015-2016.  Please see the recipient page for more information.  They will be honored at the annual WTS Greater Chicago Chapter Scholarship event in March 2016.  

For more information on scholarship applications or to donate to our educational fund, please contact the Scholarship Chairs at WTSChicago.Scholarship(at)gmail.com.

These scholarships would not be possible without the generosity of our scholarship fund donors. Thanks to our corporate partners and everyone who participates in our monthly scholarship raffles for their continued support of our scholarship fund!
