Zonta’s Young Women in Public Affairs Scholarship goes to Melissa Anne Studach
May 22, 2013, Jill Hower of the Zonta Club of Lincoln presented the Young Women in Public Affairs Scholarship to Melissa Anne Studach, a senior, at Pleasant Plains High School on May 14. Melissa will be attending Drake University majoring in Magazine Journalism.
The goal of the Zonta International Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Program is to encourage more young women to participate in public affairs by recognizing a commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements and a dedication to the advancement of the status of women.
The winner of this scholarship may continue to apply at the District level and could possibly continue to the international level.
