Young Women in Public Affairs Award (YWPA)

Applications for the 2020 Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award are now available from the Zonta Club of Janesville by email: janesville_scholarship@zontadistrict6.org

The goal of the Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award Program is to encourage more young women to participate in public affairs by recognizing a young woman’s commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements and a dedication to the empowerment of women.

Applicants are asked to reflect on their voluntary commitment to their school and to their community and the problems limiting the empowerment of women in their own country and worldwide. The Zonta International Young Women in Public Affairs Award Program looks to the young women of today for the leaders of tomorrow.

Applications are due to the Zonta Club of Janesville by email to: janesville_scholarship@zontadistrict6.org by February 15, 2020.

The application process must start with a Zonta club and applicants must contact the Zonta club for deadline information.
