Zonta EducateZ Scholarship Fully Endowed

check final payment. pngThanks to the generous donors who responded to our online appeal, a $5500 deposit was made to our Zonta EducateZ Scholarship. These donations helped up to reach the $25,000 threshold needed to  fully endow that scholarship which is managed by the Community Foundation of Boulder County.

With your help this fund will continue to grow, but in the meantime a minimum of two scholarships annually.

 

How does the Zonta EducateZ Scholarship Work?

The purpose of this scholarship is to make returning to or staying in school feasible for women who face significant financial barriers to higher education.  We are committed to helping these women reaching their potential.  The Zonta EducateZ Scholarship is awarded to a woman who:

  • wants to return to post secondary school,
  • faces significant financial barriers to attending a college, university or any accredited institution,
  • is committed to becoming self-sufficient through education.

To qualify for this scholarship award the applicant must:

  • be a resident of the State of Colorado
  • have graduated from high school or have earned a GED
  • be admitted to a two or four-year accredited college, university, or trade school
  • demonstrate financial need
  • complete the required essay
  • participate in an interview if requested.

Individual scholarships will not exceed $1000 per semester and smaller awards are possible.  The amount awarded each recipient is determined by the selection committee according to established criteria.
