Our Causes


Investing in the education of women and girls yields high returns, such as breaking cycles of poverty, fostering economic growth and empowering women both in the home and workplace.

Zonta Club of Boca Raton has a dedicated history of supporting women in education: We have provided scholarships to many young women locally in the pursuit of higher education.

In addition to scholarships awarded from our Club, we accept applications for recommendation to the District 11 Committee Chair.

  • The Amelia Earhart Fellowship expands opportunities for women pursuing advanced studies in the typically male-dominated fields of aerospace engineering and space sciences.
  • The Women in Technology Scholarship encourages women to pursue education, career opportunities and leadership roles in technology and related fields.

Zonta Cub of Boca Raton continually chooses international service projects to financially support that include the education of women and girls as key strategies.

  • As part of its activities, the Ending Child Marriage project improves education access and supports interventions that encourage girls to enroll in school, strengthens education systems and supports interventions that keep girls in school and provides out-of-school girls with alternative learning opportunities.
  • Let Us Learn Madagascar, an integrated education program, addresses education and gender inequity in Madagascar through approaches targeted toward adolescent girls.

Zonta International is supporting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which include ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. Education is essential to a prosperous life, and we are proud of our continued efforts to fight for gender equity in education.
