The Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women provides women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families with the financial resources to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. Recipients can use the award for tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense.

The Raleigh Club grants $2,000 to each local award recipient. One of these awardees is submitted for consideration for a Soroptimist Central East Coast Region award (up to $5,000). Region recipients are then considered for one of three $10,000 awards from Soroptimist International of the Americas.

The Live Your Dream application cycle is now open with a deadline of November 15 for submitting applications. Learn more about the program and read the stories of past Raleigh recipients. You can also reach out to us at with any questions you may have, or proceed directly to the application portal.
