The JoAnn Rodriguez Memorial Scholarship was established by the Zonta Club of SCV in 2022 to invest in young women who have demonstrated outstanding potential in the field of Business Accounting.
The Virginia Wrage Memorial Fund was created in 1995 by the Zonta Club of SCV to assist women age 40 and over who have experienced a life-changing event resulting in the need of schooling, allowing them to reach their potential in various fields.
Investing in the education of women and girls yields high returns, such as breaking cycles of poverty, fostering economic growth and empowering women both in the home and workplace. Zonta believes education is a human right.
