Zonta Science Award 2018

The Zonta Club of Wellington's Science Award recognises excellence in science and supports further study by an outstanding woman in her early stages of her career. In New Zealand, female representation in STEM subjects falls to around 29 percent at PhD level, and Zonta aims to boost those statistics. Dame Patsy was delighted to present the Zonta Science Award for 2018 to botanist Dr Jessie Prebble, who will use the award to travel overseas for further professional development.
