Live Your Dream

Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve their career goals by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects. In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.

The program begins at the local Soroptimist club level where the amount of the award is determined by each individual club. Each club winner is then forwarded for judging on the Region level where one winner is chosen to receive a first place award of $5,000, which is funded by Soroptimist International of the Americas (SIA). The first place region winner is then sent to SIA to compete for one of three $10,000 finalist awards.
