PACE and the ZCML Scholarship


Pace Miami has had a long relationship with the Zonta Club of Miami Lakes. Our members regularly volunteer with the organization and attend their events. But this annual scholarship is one of our most significant efforts as it is available only to girls in the PACE Miami program who are attending post secondary school. We look forward to continuing to help PACE girls moving into the next chapter of their lives!
