The mission of WTS is to advance women in the field of transportation; the WTSNUC believes strongly that providing scholarship opportunities for women pursuing transportation degrees is an important way to fulfill that commitment.

This year, we are pleased to announce four (4) scholarship opportunities totaling $6,000 for eligible undergraduate and graduate students from area schools.

The available scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students include the 5th year of the Matt Riffkin Legacy Scholarship, in the amount of $3,000, as well as three (3) awards in the amount of $1,000 each.

All local chapter recipients will be eligible to apply for WTS International Scholarship opportunities.

Undergraduate and Graduate Student Scholarships

In order to be eligible for one of the three (3) $1,000 awards, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Open to women pursuing transportation-related degrees
  • Undergraduate or graduate student
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher (transcripts required)
  • Provide a personal statement of 1,000 words or less describing their choice of college studies 

In order to be considered for the Matt Riffkin Legacy Scholarship, applicants must meet the criteria above as well as complete an essay of 1,000 words or less describing how they will use their course of study to help solve a regional transportation challenge of their choosing and why they chose that issue.
