Scholarship Program

WTS Colorado Scholarship Program

WTS Colorado fosters the development of women in the transportation field by encouraging new professionals to undertake careers in the area of transportation. One way it does this is by awarding scholarships to women pursuing community college, undergraduate, and graduate studies in transportation or a related field.

Each year the WTS Colorado Chapter supports exceptional young women as they pursue careers in the transportation industry by awarding six local scholarships. Each WTS Colorado scholarship winner is automatically entered for consideration for the WTS International Scholarship award.
