The Live Your Dream – Educational and Training Awards for Women program is one of Soroptimist’s major programs. Through this program, Soroptimists assist women who provide the primary source of income for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment opportunities.
Each year, our club budgets $2,250 or more each to distribute to up to three eligible recipients, who may use the funds to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare and transportation.
Eligible applicants must be women who provide the primary financial support for their families, and who are enrolled in or have been accepted to a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program. Applicants must demonstrate financial need. Award applications are due by November 15th. For more information, please contact Cathy Diepenbrock at email@example.com.
Congratulations to our recent recipients!
