The Florida Institute of Technology Women’s Business Center (WBC) recently received $500 from the Zonta Club of Melbourne to provide scholarships to women.
The scholarship honors the Meehan family for their longtime support of the Zonta Club. The Zonta/Meehan Scholarship is a needs-based program designed to support women in Brevard County wishing to improve their lives through education.
The scholarship will assist women at any age who may have monetary barriers but want to improve their quality of life, their independence and self-sufficiency. Applicants may use scholarship funds only once to take classes offered by the WBC, such as QuickBooks, Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
The Zonta Club of Melbourne has provided the WBC with $1,800 to-date for scholarship funds, and continues to fund this program on a quarterly basis.
