Zborowski family (feminine form: Zborowska, plural: Zborowscy) of the Jastrzębiec coat of arms was a Polish noble family from Greater Poland, It played a significant role in Polish politics in the 16th century.

First known member of the family was Marcin Zborowski (1492-1565), castellan and voivode. The main line died out with his grandson, Aleksander Zborowski, in 1621.

In family's history, the most notable events revolve around their feud with Chancellor and Hetman Jan Zamoyski. Zamoyski's execution of Samuel Zborowski in 1584 caused much uproar in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and intensified the feud. It culminated in the military conflict of the War of the Polish Succession (1587–1588), which ended with Zamoyski's victory and Zborowski's loss.
