To encourage women pursuing careers in transportation, the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of WTS awards at least six local scholarships to graduate, undergraduate, community college, and high school students.  These scholarships have been made possible through generous contributions from our corporate members.

Every year, the scholarships are competitive and based on the applicant’s specific transportation involvement and goals, job skills, and academic record.  Minority candidates are encouraged to apply.  Past applicants have backgrounds in civil, mechanical, electrical, and environmental engineering, as well as urban planning, public policy, public safety, and emergency response.  Any students that may be eligible for the scholarships should apply!


The 2023-2024 applications are available below; however, the submission deadline (Friday, December 22nd, 2023) has passed.  For reference, click on the links below to download the applications.
