Good Afternoon –
WTS is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the transportation industry. The WTS Foundation (WTSF) was formed in 2009 to provide scholarships to support the next generation of transportation professionals in our mission. WTSF has provided over $1,000,000 in scholarships to deserving women.
The local WTS Michigan Chapter supports three scholarships for deserving women in Michigan. There are two undergraduate scholarships at $1,000 each and one graduate scholarship at $2,000. The women that win at the local level are automatically entered at the International level for their chance at scholarships over $5,000 each. The Michigan Chapter has had good representation on the International level with a local Michigan undergraduate winner becoming an International recipient awarded with $3,000 and a free networking trip to the WTS International Conference.
You are listed as a contact for your University or College that could post and/or distribute the scholarship applications to those students who may qualify. The applications are due on November 5th, 2012. For your convenience I have attached the applications to this email. You can also download them on our chapter website: http://www.wtsinternational.org/michigan//documents/
If you would reply and confirm your participation, or possibly offer an alternative contact if you cannot assist, I would appreciate it. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Thank you for your time,
Lauren Warren, P.E.
