Zonta International helps women overcome gender barriers to careers in traditionally male-dominated fields through the Amelia Earhart Fellowships and the Virginia Augestad Memorial Scholarships

Gender inequality in education, however, begins much earlier in life. That is why the Zonta Club of Anchorage started ZClubs at Dimond and East High Schools in 1968 when girls were not allowed to participate in afterschool activities. Our ZClubs remain active today and have expanded to include male members.

We have also sponsored students attending the LeadNorth Program, Girls on the Run and other programs dedicated to building confidence in young girls.
