AMELIA EARHART FUND

 

In 1938, Zonta established the "Amelia Earhart Fund", a successful scholarship fund for women entering the field of aeronautics in honor of a fellow Zontian, Amelia Earhart.  Amelia Earhart was unfortunately lost during her global flight in 1937.

Ask the school guidance counselor for more information about these scholarships.  Applications for scholarships will be in Guidance Counselor's office in December.
As a leading global organization of professionals, Zonta International works to empower women worldwide through service and advocacy.
