"Women’s progress in the last century has dramatically increased the opportunities available to women. Yet, women’s participation in leadership positions in science, technology, engineering, and math continues to lag behind. “While women receive over half of bachelor’s degrees awarded in the biological sciences, they receive far fewer in the computer sciences (18.2%), engineering (19.2%), physics (19.1%), and mathematics and statistics (43.1%) (NSF, Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering, 2015).” Therefore, the goal of Zonta International Women in STEM Scholarship is to encourage women to pursue a higher education degree in science, technology, engineering or math while also encouraging leadership achievements in science, technology, engineering, and/or math and a dedication to the advancement of the status of women.​"

Application Summary: Encouraging women to pursue education, career opportunities, and leadership roles in STEM fields. In 2019 and 2021, Zonta International was pleased to support the Zonta International Women in Technology Scholarships to encourage women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in information technology.
