Women in Business Scholarship

“Women make up nearly 50 percent of the global workforce; however, gender equality is not yet a reality in senior management and corporate boardrooms around the world. According to a 2014 Catalyst Census [1], women hold only 4.2 percent of the CEO positions and 19.2 percent of board seats at S&P 500 companies. To encourage more women to pursue education and careers in business, Zonta International established the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship. The program operates at the Zonta club, district/region and international levels. Zonta annually awards up to 32 scholarships of US $2,000 each at the district/region level and six international scholarships in the amount of US $8,000 each.

Women of any age, pursuing an accredited business or business-related program who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field, are eligible and encouraged to apply. For a full list of the eligibility and application requirements, please refer to the application.
