The Zonta Club of Wellington is calling for applications for the 2018 Zonta Science Award. Applications must be received by 5 February 2018.
Established to further the status of women in scientific fields, The Zonta Science Award is for an emerging woman scientist (i.e., a recent PhD graduate rather than a woman well established in the science field).
The Award recipient receives:
- $15,000 cash to fund travel expenses and/or research material and equipment
- $3,000 for return air travel to Europe or the USA flying economy class (to be used to attend professionally related conferences or places of further study), and a
- Commemorative medal and certificate of achievement.
Founded in 1919, Zonta International is a global organisation of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. Globally more than 30,000 members belong to just under 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 67 countries.
