The Amelia Earhart Fellowship program helps talented women who are pursuing advanced studies in the typically male-dominated fields of aerospace-related sciences and engineering, achieve their educational goals. The Fellowship enables these women to invest in state-of-the-art computers to conduct their research, purchase expensive books and resource materials, and participate in specialized studies around the globe. Amelia Earhart Fellows have gone on to become astronauts, aerospace engineers, astronomers, professors, geologists, business owners, heads of companies, even Secretary of the US Air Force.

Zonta International is a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of
women worldwide through service and advocacy. Zonta awards 35 Fellowships each year.
