The Live Your Dream Awards Program (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) is Soroptimists major service project and was established by Soroptimist International of the Americas in 1972 to assist women entering or re-entering the workforce in obtaining the education and skills training they need to improve their employment status. It is designed to give women heads of household, who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve their career goals—an opportunity they have not previously had, whether because of economic or social barriers, or personal circumstances. These awards are for women who are attending, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program, or an undergraduate degree program.
Live Your Dream Award & Application Forms
The program begins on the club level, where award amounts vary. Club-level recipients become eligible for additional awards at other levels of the organization. In addition, Soroptimist grants three $10,000 finalist awards each year. Since the program’s inception, Soroptimist has funded almost $5.5 million in award and assisted about 1,640 women. In total (including local club activity), approximately $15 million in awards has been disbursed to about 22,500 women since the program began in 1972.
