WTS fosters the development of women in the transportation field by encouraging bright new professionals to undertake careers in the area of transportation. One way it does this is by awarding scholarships to women pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies in transportation or a related field.
Minimum applicant criteria for all scholarships:
Open to women
GPA of 3.0 or higher
Either graduated from an Oregon or southwest Washington high school or currently enrolled in a college in Oregon or southwest Washington
Currently enrolled in or accepted to an undergraduate or graduate degree program in a transportation-related field such as transportation engineering, planning, finance, communications, or logistics
Plans to pursue a career in a transportation-related field
Not previously awarded a WTS scholarship
The scholarships are competitive and based on the applicant's specific transportation goals, academic record and transportation-related activities or job skills. Applicants are allowed to apply for more than one scholarship; a single set of transcripts and letters of recommendation can be provided for all scholarships.
