The Jane M. Klausman (JMK) Women in Business Scholarship program helps women pursue undergraduate and master’s degrees in business management and overcome gender barriers from the classroom to the boardroom. Driven by a strong belief in gender equality, Zonta International encourages more women to pursue education and careers in business through its Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship. Women of any age, pursuing an accredited business or business-related program who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field, are eligible and encouraged to apply. Applications will be available later this year.
