WTS (Women’s Transportation Seminar) is pleased to announce the availability of scholarships to qualified female students interested in pursuing careers in transportation.


Founded in 1977, WTS is an international organization dedicated to building the future of transportation through the global advancement of women. Boasting more than 6,000 members--both women and men--WTS is helping women find opportunity and recognition in the transportation industry.  Through its professional activities, networking opportunities, and unparalleled access to industry and government leaders, WTS is turning the glass ceiling into a career portal.
