The Live Your Dream Award, offered through the Soroptimist organization, provides over $2.8 million in cash awards to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program’s inception in 1972, more than $35 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women. For application information, contact Christine Foreman at (209) 531-5330, or E-mail email@example.com. The application deadline is Nov. 15. A previous story included an incorrect e-mail address; the one listed here is the correct one.
The Oakdale Soroptimist Club will provide cash awards to its award recipients. The woman selected for the first place award will then advance to the Soroptimist Sierra Pacific Region level where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.
Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, carfare, or any other education related expense.
