The Live Your Dream Awards program assists women who are the main source of financial resources for their families, providing them with the necessary resources to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects.
Each year, more than $ 1.5 million in education grants are given to more than 1,000 women who have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence and / or alcohol and drug abuse. The beneficiaries of the Live Your Dream Award can use the cash to cover any costs associated with their efforts to obtain a higher education-such as books, childcare and transportation.
In addition to being the primary financial source for their families, qualified applicants must be enrolled or accepted into a vocational / skills training program or a degree program and must demonstrate financial needs. Also, note that only residents of the countries of Soroptimist International of the Americas and their territories are eligible to enroll in these education awards.
The Live Your Dream Awards program includes three levels of cash prizes. The program begins at the level of the local Soroptimist club, where the prize amounts vary. The beneficiaries of the awards at the local level will qualify for regional prizes of $ 3,000 or $ 5,000. The beneficiaries at the regional level then qualify to receive one of the three international awards of $ 10,000.
Since the Live Your Dream Awards program began in 1972, more than $ 30 million in educational grants have been distributed to help tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. In 2007, the program received the Associations Advance America Summit Award-ASAE Award and the highest level of recognition from the Center for Association Leadership.
