Female students over 25 entering their second year of study


Zonta International is a worldwide service organisation of female executives in business and the professions working to improve the legal,
political, economic, health, educational and professional status of women. Founded in 1919 in Buffalo, New York, USA; there are now more than
27,500 Zontians in over 1,200 clubs in 63 countries and geographical areas. The name Zonta is based upon a Sioux Indian word meaning “honest
and trustworthy” and the emblem is a composite of Sioux Indian symbols.

The Zonta Club of Noosa was chartered in 1993, and since then has raised and distributed more than $650,000 to improve the status of women,
locally, nationally and internationally, including projects in conjunction with UNICEF and UNIFEM.

Two study Bursaries are offered annually to support women returning to study after a break by offering encouragement and financial assistance. They are valued at A$1000 and A$500. Payment will be made approximately three weeks after Census Date, once enrolment has been confirmed.
