Live Your Dream Education & Training Awards For Women

The Live Your Dream Awards program (formally known as Women's Opportunity Awards program) is Soroptimist's major women's education project. Through the program, clubs assist women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects.  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.
