2021 JMK Women in Business Scholarship materials now available

Women make up a minority of leaders in the business world. Globally, only one in three small, medium and large businesses is owned by a woman. The World Bank
reports only 21.2% of S&P companies’ board seats are occupied by females, while just 6% of those companies’ CEOs are women.

For these gender gaps to narrow, women must feel empowered to start businesses and seek out leadership positions. Zonta International's Jane M. Klausman (JMK) Women in Business Scholarship helps women pursue undergraduate and master's degrees in business management and overcome gender barriers from the classroom to the boardroom.

Materials for the 2021 JMK Scholarship, including the application and poster, are now available at zonta.org/JMKScholarship. Members can find more materials, such as application cover sheets and sample certificates, on the Award, Scholarship and Fellowship Tools page.
