WTS Minnesota is pleased to offer scholarships to encourage women’s pursuit of careers in transportation-related fields. 

The scholarships are competitive and are based on the applicant’s specific transportation goals, academic record, and transportation-related activities or job skills. Minority applicants are encouraged to apply. Financial need is not a primary consideration.


WTS Scholarships are open to women who:

  • Are currently enrolled as a senior in high school (WTS MN High School Scholarship only)
  • Are currently enrolled in a degree program in a transportation related field (such as engineering, planning, finance, or logistics) in Minnesota and can provide proof of this enrollment. Students at schools in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa are also eligible if they have had Minnesota residency in the last 5 years
  • Have a GPA 3.0 or higher
  • Plan to pursue a career in transportation
