The maximum amount of each award is $3,000, totaling $20,000 for the program. Open to female residents of Utah and Idaho, applications are available online at http://www.smartwomen.zionsbank.com or by calling (801) 594-8245.
Priority consideration for funding will be given to proposals that: promote the empowerment of women; emphasize collaboration between women entrepreneurs or non-profit entities supporting women; directly benefit women or low-income and underserved populations; support endeavors that immediately benefit communities in which Zions Bank has a presence; and for proposals that provide a sound plan for measuring performance and results.

The Mountain Driving School gives participants the opportunity to learn driving skills in a classroom setting and then immediately put those skills to the test on an exciting four-wheel drive course on the ranch property.
The school is offered as a corporate team building activity, with a post driving school workshop, or a private four-wheel driving education for locals and tourists looking for an exciting outdoor activity. Pricing for the school is determined by the number of participants, the number of vehicles and half or full day participation. Contact the Rendezvous Ranch for more information.
