Zonta Club accepting scholarship applications (213)

LACONIA — The Zonta Club of the Lakes Region is now accepting applications for the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship.
Established in 1998 by Zonta International to encourage undergraduate women to enter careers and seek leadership positions in business-related fields, this program ultimately seeks to influence business decisions that positively affect women by increasing the number of women in executive positions in the field of business management.
The program was established from a bequest by the late Jane M. Klausman, a member of the Zonta Club of Syracuse, New York and the 1990-1995 Zonta International Parliamentarian.
Applicants must be at least in the second year of study in a business related program and can include Master's level of study as well. The local Lakes Region winner will receive $500.
Winners of local Zonta Club competitions for the award are then forwarded to the District competition for a $1,000 award. The Lakes Region Club is in District 1 with clubs in New England states and the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. District winners then are eligible for selection for 12 International awards of $7,000 each.
Applications can be accessed online at www.zonta.org. Completed applications need to be submitted to the Zonta Club of the Lakes Region at PO Box 1498, Laconia, NH 03247-1498 no later than June 1, 2013 for the 2013 award.
