The Zonta Club of Midland offers annual scholarships to women of all ages pursuing career goals that will positively impact the status of women. Funds to support the scholarships are raised through the Annual Zonta Homewalk held in December. Zonta is pleased to announce this year’s scholarship recipients, recognized at Zonta’s May meeting: Alisha Arnold (Davenport University – Nursing), Alison Sanford (Delta College - Dental Hygiene), Emily Montgomery (Central Michigan University – Graduate Student in Education Counseling), and Alicia Wietfeldt (Davenport University – Nursing).
Each recipient receives a scholarship in the amount of $2,500, which may be used at any post-secondary educational institution for tuition, books, cost of certification, or vocational education. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, work/life skills, community service/extracurricular activities, GPA/GED, honors/awards, and references.
