Scholarships We support Zonta International scholarships like the Amelia Earhart Fellowship and have been proud to see twelve University of Colorado women receive this prestigious international honor since 2006. Locally, we have endowed a group of awards for women in Boulder County. We have created the Bev Hackbart Scholarship to provide tuition support for a single parent attending the University of Colorado, Boulder. Most recently we have endowed the Zonta EducateZ Scholarship to help women return to post secondary education. We also have a Boulder Country Young Women in Public Affairs Award and the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship which we will award locally for the first time in 2017. Our newest scholarship is the Zonta Foothills Z Club Scholarship which will also be awarded to high school seniors in the spring of 2017.

Zonta EducateZ In 2012 Zonta Foothills launched Zonta EducateZ to support at risk women and girls through education and empowerment.   Zonta EducateZ works closely with the Boulder Valley Schools providing funds, advocacy, mentoring and other hands-on support to help close the achievement gap through literacy, college preparedness and basic life skills.  We are also the proud sponsors of The Boulder High School PantherZ Z Club and the Flatirons Golden Z Club which provide leadership and service opportunities for high and college school-aged girls.

Advocacy We have worked tirelessly to support Zonta Says No! in our community. Through advocacy and service we have supported this campaign to help fight violence against women.  Most recently we have initiated the Culture of Respect Campaign to help establish a formal approach to this issue through primary and secondary education.
