ZONTA Scholarship 2020-2021

Women in Technology

Women in Technology

The world’s economy, industry, and sciences have become increasingly digitized. These developments disrupt society and familiar social processes. Women are still largely underrepresented in technology fields. To create a world in which men and women have equal opportunities, women need 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, careers, and leadership roles in technology fields.


The Zonta International Foundation awarded US $108,000 in scholarships in 2019 . Zonta membership voted in July 2020 to continue the program as an international competition, offering 20 non-renewable scholarships of US $8000 each in 2021. 

Applications for the 2022 awards are due October 15, 2021 to Zonta International with winners announced in April 2022.
