The Zonta Club of Melbourne welcomes all Brevard County female high school students interested in pursuing an education focusing on public affairs to apply for its Young Women in Public Affairs Scholarship.
The recipient of the Club’s award will receive $1,500.00 for her higher education. She will go on to compete at the district level for an additional $1,500 and, possibly, the Zonta International level scholarship for another $4,000. The local scholarship is awarded in memory of Monica Jean Campbell. Monica was a 16 year old cheerleader at Melbourne High School when she was murdered by her abusive ex-boyfriend in June of 1990.
