As part of its mission, Zonta is inviting applications for its Amelia Earhart Fellowship from women of any nationality who are pursuing a Ph.D. The $10,000 fellowship is awarded to thirty-five women a year and may be used at any accredited university or college that offers post-graduate courses and degrees.
The program seeks to help talented women pursuing advanced studies in the typically male-dominated fields of aerospace-related sciences and engineering achieve their educational goals. The fellowship enables these women to invest in state-of-the-art computers to conduct their research, purchase expensive books and resource materials, and participate in specialized studies around the globe.
Women of any nationality pursuing a Ph.D./doctoral degree who demonstrate a superior academic record in the field of aerospace-related science or aerospace-related engineering are eligible to apply. Applicants must be registered in a full-time Ph.D./doctoral program when funds are received in September and must not graduate before April.
See the Zonta Anchorage website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
