Zonta International Jane M Klausman Business Scholarship 2021

The Zonta Club of Paradise Point (District 22), (Northern) Gold Coast, is pleased to announce that it is seeking suitable applicants for the 2021 Zonta International Jane M. Klausman Scholarship.

The Zonta International Foundation awarded the first Jane M. Klausman (JMK) Women in Business Scholarship in 1998 to women pursuing degrees in business leading to a business management career.  This scholarship program was established from a bequest from Ms Klausman who was a Member of the Zonta Club of Syracuse, New York, USA as well as being the 1990-1995 Zonta International Parliamentarian.  During her career, Ms Klausman was a professional secretary, parliamentarian and entrepreneur.

As Zonta International believes in and supports gender equality, the JMK Scholarship was established to encourage more women to pursue both undergraduate and Masters Degrees in business management and to also overcome gender barriers that may be encountered from the classroom to the boardroom.

Each year, up to thirty two JMK Scholarships are awarded to successful applicants at the Zonta district/region level as well as six at the international level.  The scholarships are made up of $US2,000 each at the district/region level plus six at the international level of $US8,000 each.

Women of any age pursuing a tertiary level business management program with specialisation fields in accounting, economics, finance, business management, marketing, operations management, human resources management, international business or entrepreneurship at an accredited university/college/institute, who demonstrate outstanding potential in their chosen field of study and, are living or studying in a Zonta district/region are eligible.  On-line students are also eligible if enrolled and studying at an accredited university/college/institute.
