Live Your Dream: Training and Education Awards for Women – $2000
Application Deadline November 15, 2020.
Soroptimist’s Live Your Dream Awards are cash grants given to motivated women with dependents who provide the primary financial support for their families. Our award recipients are women seeking to improve their lives by gaining additional skills training or education but do not have the resources to do so. This is a needs-based award. Award recipients may use the cash award to offset essential costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition, medical expenses or transportation.
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that improves the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Each year, Soroptimist awards more than $2.6 million to more than 1,700 women, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence and drug or alcohol abuse.
Raleigh Soroptimists will grant up to four (4) awards in Spring 2021 from a much smaller pool of applicants. This means, each qualified woman who applies has a very strong chance of being selected to receive an award.
