Every January, Zonta clubs throughout the world celebrate Amelia Earhart.
Zonta International was the only non-flying organization that Amelia Earhart joined in her short, intense life. She had been a member of the Zonta Club of New York, USA, since 1930 when she disappeared on July 2, 1937 while attempting to be the first pilot to circle the world by air at the equator. The following year, Zonta International vowed to honor her memory with a scholarship for women graduate students in engineering.
