Scholarship Information

Each year, the Gamma Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. awards deserving young women with academic scholarships to help further their educational aspirations. With the rising cost of higher education, we hope to assist with some of those costs, such as books, fees, and other supplies.
