Established in 1998 from a generous bequest by Jane M. Klausman, a member of the Zonta Club of Syracuse, New York USA, and the 1990-1995 Zonta International Parliamentarian, the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship is awarded annually to women pursuing undergraduate or Master's degrees in business management.
The program operates at the Zonta club, district and international levels. Zonta International awards scholarships of US$1,000 each at the district/region level and twelve international scholarships in the amount of US$7,000 each. The Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarships are awarded annually and may be used for tuition, books or living expenses at any university, college or institution offering accredited business courses and degrees.
Applications must be completed and presented to Zonta clubs according to the club's assigned deadline. A club recipient is selected, and the application is then presented to the governor. After a district recipient is selected, the application is presented to Zonta International Headquarters. International recipients will be contacted by their Zonta club leader by mid October.
