2019 South Florida WTS Scholarships Opportunities

  • Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship (Graduate) - $2,000
  • Sharon D. Banks Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship (Undergraduate) - $2,000
  • Maribel Lena Memorial Scholarship (Undergraduate) - $2,500
 
The application forms and a flyer are attached with this e-mail. The deadline for submitting the applications is December 17, 2018. 
 
We sometimes receive only a handful of applications and therefore in the past everybody who applied had a very good chance of receiving a scholarship. We would appreciate it if you circulate the information to any interested applicants. The winners of local scholarships will be eligible for additional national scholarships. 
 
The purpose of the scholarships awarded by WTS is to encourage women to pursue career paths in transportation. All applications must meet the following minimum criteria:
 
  • Open to women applicants
  • Applicant of the South Florida Chapter’s $2,000 or $2,500 Scholarships must be from the South Florida area or must be going to College/University in South Florida
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Currently enrolled in a graduate degree program for the Helen Overly Memorial Scholarship in a transportation-related field such as engineering, planning, finance or logistics
  • or currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program for the Sharon Banks Scholarship or Maribel Lena Memorial Scholarship in a transportation-related field such as engineering, planning, finance or logistics
  • Plans to pursue a career in transportation.
 
The scholarships are competitive and based on the applicant's specific transportation goals, academic record and transportation-related activities or job skills. Minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Financial need is not a primary consideration.
 
There are also several additional scholarship opportunities such as the Diane Woodend Jones Leadership Legacy Scholarship for Graduate students and the Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates that are offered at WTS International only. If anyone is interested in competing for these scholarships, please respond to this email.
 
Feel free to e-mail our Scholarship Chair Mary Conway for additional questions you or your students may have. Also, if there are others in your organizations that this type of email should be directed to in the future, if you would please forward to them and also advise me I will update and expand our distribution list for next year’s scholarship cycle. Thank you.
 
Please submit sponsorship applications to Mary Conway, our Scholarship Chair at mconway@hntb.com by December 17, 2018.
