Zonta Club of Taoyuan maintains a scholarship program for 14 years
To advocate for young women in their community, the Zonta Club of Taoyuan, District 31, established a scholarship program that is now in its 14th year.
Club members said the main purpose of the scholarship is to encourage young women who wish to pursue higher education and to promote professional leadership. As of 2018, 198 young women have benefited from the program.
An awards ceremony is held each December where recipients present how they plan to use the scholarship funds and their goals for the future.
Because of the scholarship, many young women are given opportunities to access greater resources in their pursuit of careers in fields such as engineering, business, music, art, aerospace, and mathematics.
Members hope the program will help the young women establish successful careers and enable them to give back to society when they are older.
