One of our club's main focus is to raise funds to help provide scholarship assistance for women who are attending the Salt Lake Community College.
Please watch the video to meet 2020's local scholarship recipients. We couldn't be more pleased to contribute to their continued success!
Other Scholarship Opportunities
Though about 40% of the world’s workforce is women, according to data from the Inter-Parliamentary Union, only 25.7% of all national parliamentarians were female as of 1 September 2021. Because Zonta International believes that young women are the key to women’s advancement in the field of public service, it offers the Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award, which recognizes young women, ages 16-19, for demonstrating leadership skills and commitment to public service and civic causes, and encourages them to continue their participation in public and political life.
Women, aged 16-19 on April 1st each year, studying at a secondary school, college or university in a Zonta district/region, or who are studying elsewhere but are citizens of a Zonta country, who demonstrate evidence of the following, are eligible to apply. For questions, or to submit completed applications, please email Valerie Fritz, Chair, Scholarship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be received by March 1, 2023 in order to be reviewed and forwarded to our local district/region for review.
The program operates at the Zonta club, district/region and international levels. Zonta International offers 37 international awards of US$5,000. Each district/region may submit one applicant for consideration for an international scholarship. The five largest districts may submit a second applicant for a total of two applicants.
