2023

The Zonta Club of Concord awarded $14,000 in scholarships for 2023. All scholarship recipients were recognized and celebrated at our June meeting at The Common Man in Concord. Morgan Casey, from Bishop Brady High School and Alyssa Ishii, from Merrimack Valley High School both received the Young Women in Public Affairs Scholarship. This scholarship recognizes young women, ages 16-19, for their demonstration of leadership skills and commitment to public service and civic causes and encourages them to continue their participation in public and political life. Karissa Livingston and June McCall, both attending the University of New Hampshire received the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship. This scholarship is for women enrolled in an undergraduate or master’s degree program in business management. Erin McCarthy, attending the University of New Hampshire, was awarded the Women in STEM Scholarship.  This scholarship is for women pursuing a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) degree program who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field. Tara Rivard, attending the NHTI-Concord’s Community College, was awarded the Zonta Memorial Scholarship.  This scholarship is awarded to women who are returning to college more than five years after graduating from high school. This award was especially poignant for our Club as Tara is in the Nursing Program at NHTI where one of our members and major benefactors of this award, Carolyn Andrews, had been a nursing professor, and she recently passed away.
