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, or contact for further information. Applications close on Friday 14th August.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
