Soroptimist International of Raleigh is now accepting applications for the Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women. These awards are open to women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and are seeking financial assistance to continue their education or receive training.

This year, the Raleigh club has increased its commitment to the community and will provide a $2,000 cash award to each of five award recipients, one of whom will then be chosen to advance to the Soroptimist Central East Coast Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.

Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, carfare, or any other education related expense.
