District 4

Awards (Education)

Promoting Education

Building Our future

District 4 and our clubs promote gender equality in education to further develop a pool of talented women for the future that is traditionally dominated by men. To address gaps and promote gender equality in education, our District supports four programs for women and girls pursuing education and careers in the traditionally male-dominated fields of aerospace sciences and engineering, business and business management, public affairs and we are proud to announce the Women in Technology scholarship pilot program will continue and encourage women to pursue a leadership role in technology.

Many clubs offer financial awards and scholarships to enable young women the opportunity to further their pursuit of higher education.
