Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (ID 1910)
- Start Date:
- The five Soroptimist Clubs of the Rogue Valley will be giving eleven awards, five at $2000 and six at $1000.
- The Live Your Dream Award was designed to help women who have primary financial responsibility for their family, who are in school or a training program and who need help to pay for their expenses. Chances of receiving an award are excellent for those submitting a qualifying application as we have received fewer than 30 applications each year for the past several years.
The five Soroptimist Clubs of the Rogue Valley will be giving eleven awards, five at $2000 and six at $1000.
The top five winners will advance to our regional level to compete for additional awards of up to $5000, with the possibility of going on to our international competition for $10,000.
These cash awards are given to women who are seeking to improve their economic status by gaining additional skills, training or education. The awards can be used to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, including tuition, books, supplies, child care or transportation.
