The Wanda Schafer Graduate Scholarship was established in 2002 by the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of the Women's Transportation Seminar (WTS). The scholarship is designed to encourage women to pursue career paths in transportation. The scholarship is awarded to women pursuing graduate studies in transportation or a related field.
As a tribute to Ms. Wanda Schafer, the first president of the DFW Chapter of WTS, the Board of Directors voted to name the annual WTS graduate scholarship, the Wanda J. Schafer Graduate Scholarship, to honor Wanda for her dedicated service to WTS. Wanda became a WTS member and chapter president in 1989. She brought with her 20 years of experience in public service, tremendous organizational abilities, and a spirit of determination that helped WTS nearly double its membership in two years.
