Education & Scholarships

WTS Los Angeles Scholarship Program

WTS-LA is a leader in attracting, mentoring, and advancing the next generation of transportation professionals in Southern California. For over 35 years, we have awarded scholarships to deserving women entering the transportation field. In just the past 12 years, our chapter has awarded more than 125 scholarships worth over half a million dollars.

In 2022, the WTS Los Angeles Scholarship Committee oversaw the distribution of more than $100,000 in competitive academic scholarships to 20 women in high school, community college/trade school, undergraduate, and graduate programs in transportation-related fields. Learn more about our scholarships here.

Our annual scholarship program provides significant financial support to high-achieving women seeking assistance to cover rising education costs. Help WTS-LA raise and award over $100,000 this year in scholarships for high school, community college/trade school, undergraduate, and graduate students!
