Two Opportunities For Local Women

 

 

Scholarships to help an adult female student advance her education and to recognise a young woman’s commitment to volunteer work in her school and community are being offered by a women’s service organisation.

The Zonta Club of South Auckland is calling for women aged 25 and over, living in the South Auckland area, to apply for a Study Award of up to $5000 and young women aged 16-19 who are volunteer leaders to apply for a Young Women in Public Affairs Award (YWPA) of $1500. {{More}}

The Study Award has been in place since 1983 and the Young Women in Public Affairs Award was first awarded by the club in 1997. Fifty women have benefited from these awards over that time and the opportunity is there for two more women this year.

Zonta is an international organisation that works to advance the status of women through service and advocacy. These scholarships were established to recognise the importance of education and leadership for women and are offered in partnership with the Chenery Trust.

Applicants for these two scholarships can find details on the Club website, www.zontasouthauckland.org.nz or contact maddock@ihug.co.nz for further information. Applications close on Friday 14th August.
