Profile and Committee
The Zonta International Scholarship
Status March, 2023
Zonta International offers the Zonta International Women in STEM Scholarship for the third cycle of the scholarship program. The program operates at several Clubs and at international level.
CSW67 reaffirmed the importance of women and girls’ full, equal and meaningful participation and leadership in science, technology and innovation, and expressed concern on the limited progress in closing the gender gap in access to and use of technologies, connectivity, digital literacy and education. It also expressed grave concern about the continuity and interrelation between offline and online violence, harassment and discrimination against women and girls and condemned the increase of such acts.
