2019−2020 Women’s Transportation Seminar Scholarship Applications

Kickoff for the 2019 National Scholarship Program has begun! This year, the WTS Southwest Ohio Chapter is offering two scholarship opportunities.

Once again, the Southwest Ohio Chapter is offering our local level scholarship, the “Sharon D. Banks Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship”! This scholarship is for undergraduate students that are majoring in a transportation related field. A $3,000 scholarship will be awarded by the Southwest Ohio Chapter to the most qualified applicant that submits an accurate and complete application. This local level winner will also be forwarded on for consideration of the $5,000 WTS National Level Scholarship.

Additionally, the Southwest Ohio Chapter is also offering a scholarship, in the amount of $1,500, for a woman pursuing transportation related studies through a junior college or trade school. This local level winner will also be forwarded on for consideration of the $2,500 WTS National Level Scholarship in this category.

In addition to the locally offered Sharon D. Banks Scholarship and the WTS Junior College/Trade School Scholarship, there are (6) national scholarships available. If you wish to be considered for any of the National Level Scholarships, please submit your application to the Southwest Ohio Chapter. Applicants will be evaluated and the highest ranked application for each of the above scholarships will be forwarded to WTS National. Note that only (1) copy of an application is necessary to be filed for each scholarship, as the Sharon D. Banks Scholarship application serves the purposes of both the local and national review process.
