A note from Patsy Napier; WTS Central Virginia Chapter Scholarship Committee Chair

________________________________________________________________________________

To Whom It May Concern:

Founded in 1977, the Women's Transportation Seminar (WTS) was created through the efforts of 40 women involved in transportation in the Washington, DC, area who recognized that a mechanism was needed to enhance professional and personal advancement and to develop industry and government recognition of the increasing involvement of women in the field of transportation. Boasting more than 6,500 members--both women and men--WTS is helping women find opportunity and recognition in the transportation industry.  Through its professional activities, networking opportunities, and unparalleled access to industry and government leaders, WTS is turning the glass ceiling into a career portal.

 

WTS’s vision is “Transforming the transportation industry through the advancement of women”.  To facilitate that goal, the next generation of leaders must be fostered and supported in their pursuits.  Our Scholarship Program is one way that we demonstrate this support.Through the generosity of thousands of WTS members and supporters, the organization has provided more than $2 million in scholarships to deserving women throughout the transportation industry, supporting the next generation of transportation professionals and advancing the principles of WTS, and has created educational and awareness programs like Transportation YOU.

 

The WTS Central Virginia Chapter, on behalf of WTS Foundation (WTSF), is pleased to send you the 2017-2018 WTS Scholarship Application packets.  This packet contains applications for the following scholarships:

 

  • Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship Application

  • Sharon D. Banks Memorial Scholarship Application
  • Molitoris Leadership Scholarship Application
  • Transportation YOU National Scholarship (High School Senior girls)

The Central Virginia Chapter also offers local Scholarship awards in the amount of $500.00 for each of the above Scholarships. Our Central Virginia Chapter also offers our Patsy G. Napier Future Transportation Leader Scholarship to High School Senior Girls in the amount of $500.00.

Please note that completed scholarship applications must be received by WTS Central Virginia Chapter by November 14, 2017.  Applications may be mailed or emailed to:
