Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates

Founded in 1977, the Women's Transportation Seminar 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. WTS is now an international organization of more than 5,000 transportation professionals - both women and men representing cities and states in the United States, Canada and Great Britain.
 
Part of the WTS goal of fostering the development of women in the transportation field can be realized by encouraging bright new professionals to undertake careers in the area of transportation.  The WTS Scholarships are awarded to women pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in transportation or a related field that demonstrate leadership skills, ability, and interest.
