Scholarship Description
The Women's Transportation Seminar (WTS) Foundation awards scholarships to women who are pursuing careers in transportation through undergraduate and graduate programs.

Overly Memorial Graduate Scholarship, Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates, Leadership Legacy Scholarship for Graduates, Junior College Scholarship, WTS Transportation YOU High School Scholarship and Lea+Elliott Transportation YOU DC Summit Scholarship.

The purpose of the Molitoris Leadership Scholarship is to motivate and reward women who demonstrate leadership in the transportation industry, ensuring that the essential leadership, skills and perspective of women are included in planning the transportation systems of the future.

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

  • Open to women
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
