Zonta International Awards 30 Amelia Earhart Fellowships

Presented To Women In Aerospace Sciences And Engineering

Zonta International recently awarded 30 women from 15 countries with the prestigious Amelia Earhart Fellowship for the 2019-2020 academic year. Chosen from 175 applicants worldwide, these 30 women exhibited the most promise in advancing research in the field of aerospace.

Women make up only 25 percent of the workforce in the aerospace industry. To encourage them to expand their horizons by exploring occupations and holding positions beyond those traditionally held by females, Zonta International annually awards the Amelia Earhart Fellowship to women pursuing Ph.D./doctoral degrees in aerospace-applied sciences or aerospace-applied engineering.

"I am very proud that Zonta International took the amazing leap of faith in 1938 to initiate a fellowship for women in graduate studies in aerospace sciences. The caliber of the applicants each year has validated that leap of faith to promote women to become leaders in aerospace sciences and engineering," said Holly Anderson, former Fellow and chairman of the Zonta International Amelia Earhart Fellowship Committee.

Since 1938, Zonta has awarded 1,603 Amelia Earhart Fellowships, totaling more than US$10.3 million, to 1,174 women from 73 countries. Throughout its history, Zonta has awarded more than 3,000 fellowships, scholarships and awards through donations made to the Zonta International Foundation.
