Zonta Scholarships are given on a one academic year (3 quarters or 2 semesters) basis, contingent upon the student’s sustained academic achievement. The award will be applied toward tuition, fees, board and room, books and/or other related expenses and will be sent directly to the school authorities as designated by the scholarship award recipient, in two (or three, if applicable) equal payments.
If a recipient drops out of school while the award is in effect, no further funds will be distributed. Furthermore, the recipient will be bound by separate agreement to repay to the Zonta Club of Lincoln the total sum of all funds received within a reasonable length of time.
Thank-you for applying for this scholarship. We wish you the best of luck in your educational endeavors.
