Women in STEM Scholarship

Scholarship description

In 2019 and 2021, Zonta International was pleased to support the Zonta International Women in Technology Scholarships to encourage women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in information technology. In June 2022, the Zonta International membership voted to continue the program with an expanded focus on all STEM fields, not only technology. With this change, the Zonta International Board approved a name change and will offer the Zonta International Women in STEM Scholarship for the third cycle of the scholarship program in 2023.

The 2023 Women in STEM recipients will receive an international scholarship of US$5,000 from Zonta International.

Applications for the 2023 Women in STEM scholarships have closed.



Women in STEM Scholarships are made possible by generous contributions to the Rose Fund from Zontians, Zonta clubs and friends of Zonta.
