Zonta District 14 STEM Award & ZI Women in STEM Scholarship

General Information

Women are still largely underrepresented in technology and other STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) fields. To create a world in which men and women have equal opportunities, women need to have an active role in technology and technological developments. Zonta District 14 is pleased to offer its Zonta D14 STEM Award to encourage women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in technology.

In 2023 also Zonta International offers a Women in STEM Scholarschip, so this year we combine both awards.
