WTS-DC 2018 Scholarship Award Winners

 

2019 WTS-DC Scholarship Applications Is Now Closed

The WTS-DC chapter offers graduate and undergraduate scholarships, typically ranging from $500 to $2000 each.

The 2019 WTS-DC scholarship application period ended in October 2019. The WTS-DC Chapter Board will select the recipients, notify all applicants of their decision, and nominate the Chapter’s winners for WTS International award consideration by early December. Recipients are invited to receive their scholarship and gain recognition at the annual WTS-DC Holiday Party this December in Washington, DC.

Select recipients of the WTS-DC scholarships will then be nominated for WTS International recognitions—the Helene M. Overly Memorial Graduate Scholarship ($10,000), the Leadership Legacy Scholarship for Graduates ($5,000), the Sharon D. Banks Memorial Scholarship ($5,000), and the Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates ($5,000).

Please direct any questions to the wts.dc.scholarships@gmail.com.

 

The WTS-DC Scholarship Program: Overview

At WTS-DC, we feel that education is a vital tool to facilitate the advancement of transportation professionals. Every year, WTS-DC awards scholarships to deserving young women who are studying transportation at undergraduate and graduate programs in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. As a chapter, we believe that giving scholarships is one of the most important things we do.
