Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter WTS Undergraduate Leadership Scholarship

Scholarship Description
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 Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter WTS Undergraduate Leadership Scholarship is awarded to women pursuing undergraduate studies in transportation or a related field.

The purpose of the D/FW Chapter WTS Undergraduate Leadership Scholarship is to motivate and reward women who demonstrate leadership in the transportation industry. The leadership, skills, and perspective of women are essential to assure that the transportation systems of the future respond to the needs of all. Leadership does not just happen.

These qualities should receive special attention in the selection of the award winner.
