  • Scholarship Description
  • 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 Monique Pegues Graduate Leadership Scholarship is awarded to women pursuing graduate studies in transportation or a related field.

    As a memorial to Monique Pegues, past president of the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of WTS, the purpose of the Monique Pegues Graduate 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. Monique Pegues possessed all of these qualities and more. As Director of Government Relations for the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, Monique became a leader within the Dallas-Fort Worth transportation community working to achieve transportation options for all. Monique also served in many leadership capacities within the D/FW Chapter of WTS.
