Thank you to AECOM, our WTS Awards Recognition Luncheon Sponsor, for their continued support of our chapter.
2022 WTS award winners are an outstanding group of leaders, committed to the advancement of the transportation sector and the women within the industry.
WTS fosters the development of women in the transportation field by encouraging
students and new professionals to undertake careers in the transportation field. One
way it does this is by awarding scholarships to women pursuing studies in a
transportation or related field.
How to Apply for 2023
Each year the WTS Colorado Chapter supports exceptional young women as they pursue careers in the transportation industry by awarding six local scholarships. Each WTS Colorado scholarship winner is automatically entered for consideration for the WTS International Scholarship award.
