Zonta Club for Fort Myers has created the Zonta Club of Fort Myers Area Scholarship Endowed Fund in partnership with the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU). The two organizations have joined forces to assist women with their education. Zonta of Fort Myers raises funds for this scholarship program and maintains an endowed scholarship. We may present one to two scholarships each year.
Complete Scholarship Application through FGCU (Zonta of Fort Myers does not initiate the scholarship application). Zonta of Fort Myers selects the recipient(s) from a list provided by the FGCU. This is done without fanfare and we may or may not participate in the recognition dinners.
Preference will be given to individuals
- returning to school after interrupting their education for a period of two or more years;
- who are the primary caregivers of their families
- whose other avenues for grants and scholarships have been exhausted
