Gail Achterman Leadership Scholarship

Provided by Women's Transportation Seminar Portland Chapter

Part of the WTS goal of fostering the development of women in the transportation field can be realized by encouraging bright new professionals to undertake careers in the area of transportation. The Gail Achterman Leadership Scholarship is awarded to women pursuing graduate or undergraduate studies in transportation or a related field that demonstrate leadership skills, ability, and interest. The purpose of the Gail Achterman Leadership Scholarship is to motivate and reward women who demonstrate leadership in the transportation industry. The leadership, skills and perspective of women are essential to assure that the transportation systems of the future respond to the needs of all. Leadership does not just happen. Leaders personally invest and risk much. They must take on struggles that many would avoid and persevere to reach successful outcomes. These qualities should receive special attention in the selection of the award winner. Requirements: • Open to women • GPA of 3.0 or higher • Currently enrolled in or accepted to an undergraduate or graduate degree program in a transportation-related field such as transportation engineering, planning, finance, communications, or logistics • Plans to pursue a career in a transportation-related field • Not previously awarded a WTS scholarship at the graduate level
