Scholarships

WTS-DC Scholarship

The mission of WTS is to “transform the transportation industry through the advancement of women.”  At WTS-DC, we feel that education is a vital tool to facilitate that advancement, and every year, WTS-DC awards scholarships to deserving young women who are studying transportation at undergraduate and graduate programs in the DC area.  As a chapter, we believe that giving scholarships is one of the most important things we do.

Congratulations to our 2013 winners, who were honored at the WTS-DC Holiday Party on December 10th! The 2014 scholarship application period will open this fall.  W
