Deadline: Applications for 2015 scholarships are due by Wed., Oct. 21, 2015 at 7 p.m.

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.

Available scholarships (click title for application):

The scholarships are competitive and based on the applicant's specific transportation career goals; leadership, especially related to transportation; academic record; transportation-related activities or job skills; writing skills; and letters of recommendation.  Minority candidates are encouraged to apply.  Applicants are allowed to apply for more than one scholarship.
