Live Your Dream Awards

Award Summary
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. Each year, over $2.5 million is provided in cash grants to women
in need. Since the program’s inception in 1972, more than $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women
achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families—leading to stronger communities, nations
and the world.

Award Amount
The Live Your Dream Award starts at the club level where award amounts vary. Club-level recipients then become eligible for region level awards granted in each of Soroptimist’s 28 regions. The first-place region recipients then become candidates
for one of three $10,000 finalist awards.
