To Whom It May Concern,
I am a member of the WTS Greater Chicago Chapter Scholarship Committee. I am writing to you today to let you know about several scholarships available through our local Greater Chicago Chapter and WTS International. WTS is an international organization dedicated to the professional advancement of women in transportation. We are offering five scholarships this year to women pursuing careers in the area of transportation. Two of the scholarships are for graduate students, two are for undergraduate students, and one is for all students. The scholarships and amounts we are offering from our local chapter are:
- Sharon D. Banks Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship - $3,000
- Molitoris Leadership Scholarship for Undergraduates - $2,000
- Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship for Graduate Students - $5,000
- Leadership Legacy Scholarship for Graduate Students - $3,000
- WTS Chicago Executive Partnership Scholarship - $2,000 (local only)
You can visit our website for more information about the range of scholarships we offer. The applications can be downloaded using this link.
All local winners will be nominated to compete for the national WTSF scholarship awards, unless noted otherwise. I have attached copies of the applications for each of these scholarships which are due December 16, 2020. It is my hope that you will forward on the applications to your students. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you have an alternative contact that would be better suited to distribute this information. Thank you.
