    To encourage women pursuing careers in transportation, the Orange County Chapter of WTS will be offering multiple graduate and undergraduate scholarships this year to women in Southern California.

The number of scholarships and the amounts for the 2011-2012 academic year will be determined following a review of the applications received, but it is anticipated that a similar level of funding will be available to be distributed to exceptional applicants.
