Dear Sir or Madam:

The Zonta Club of Northern Valley, NJ is offering two scholarships to single-parent female adults who are returning to school or who are continuing their education.  Each scholarship will be in the amount of $1,250.

For those who are not aware of our club, we are part of Zonta International, a worldwide organization of business and professional people whose mission is to improve the status of women.  Our club has been serving women in Bergen County, NJ, and the world, for over 60 years.  It is our hope that these scholarships will help the recipients to continue their education in order to better their lives.

We have enclosed a copy of our scholarship eligibility criteria and a copy of the scholarship application.  Please duplicate these documents and distribute to any female applicants who might benefit from this award.  The applications are due to me no later than March 25, 2019.  Please have the applicants mail to me at the below address.  Completed pdf's can be emailed to me at the below email address.

Funding for the scholarships is done through our 501(c) 3 tax exempt foundation, Zonta Club of Northern Valley, NJ, Inc.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at the below email address.  You can find out more about us by visiting our local club website (see above) and by visiting Zonta International’s website,  Applications may also be downloaded from our website.

Very truly yours,
