New Initiative - Continuing Education and Certification grant

The Delta Zeta Foundation is thrilled to announce a new initiative to support our members in their educational and professional endeavors – a Continuing Education and Certification grant. Today marks the official launch of our fundraising efforts to support this grant. Once established, members of all ages can apply for a grant to support them in their professional development.

We understand that achieving traditional college degrees are one of multiple paths to success in today’s dynamic job market for women in all stages of life. That’s why we’re dedicated to supporting individuals, seeking certifications and non-traditional continuing education programs.

For more information, please reach out to Alicia Favata at afavata@deltazeta.org.
