WTS-IE Scholarships

About the Chapter’s Scholarship Program: One of WTS-IE's primary goals is to provide scholarships for women pursuing careers in transportation. Each year, women with permanent residence in the Inland Empire, or who are enrolled at a college of university located within the Inland Empire, are invited to apply for a scholarship. This includes high school seniors who plan to enroll in college or university for their freshman year.

The 2017-2018 Scholarship application process is complete and more than $40K in scholarship funds were awarded in January 2018.

The 2018-2019 WTS-IE Scholarship application period will open in September 2018. Please note the application process below.

Application Process:​

Each applicant will be required to submit an application, which includes the following:

  •     Personal statement (as outlined in the application)
  •     Transcripts
  •     Two letters of recommendation
  •     Proof of enrollment at Inland Empire school or proof of residency in the Inland Empire​

Once the minimum eligibility is established, applicants will be competitively selected based on merit.
