Women in STEM Scholarship
The world economy, industry and sciences are becoming increasingly digitized, and these developments are disrupting society and familiar social processes. Women, however, are still largely underrepresented in technology fields. To create a world in which men and women have equal opportunities, women need to have an active role in technology and technological developments. Zonta International offered a new Zonta International Women in Technology Scholarship in 2019 to encourage women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in technology.
The next round of scholarships will be awarded in 2023. More information regarding updated eligibility requirements and the application period will be posted in December 2022.
For the launch of this pilot program, the Zonta Foundation for Women awarded US$108,000 in scholarships: 30 district/region scholarships of US$2,000 each and six international scholarships of US$8,000 each.
