The Women’s Opportunity Awards program, Soroptimist’s major service project, has been renamed to the Live Your Dream Award.
This award aids women seeking to improve their economic status by gaining additional skills, training and education. The program helps women who, as the primary wage earners for their families, must improve their employment status by entering or returning to the work force.
Live Your Dream Awards applicants have faced severe hardships that have prevented them from pursuing and achieving their educational and professional goals. Most are single mothers and/or reliant on public assistance as their source of income. Many are domestic abuse survivors.
The Live Your Dream Awards helps women rebuild their lives through improved employment opportunities.
This unique program supplies women with the resources they need to get ahead. Recipients may use the cash awards to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, including tuition, books, supplies, child care and car fare.
Applications are given yearly, each Spring. For more information, please contact us
