September 24, 2017, Vista, CA–-Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland is seeking applications for this year’s Live Your Dream Awards. Applications are available online now (link HERE), and the deadline to submit is November 15, 2017.
The Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women provides women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families with the financial resources to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. Recipients can use the award for tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense. Each year, over $2 million is provided in cash grants to women in need.
Since the program’s inception in 1972, more than $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families—leading to stronger communities, nations and the world.
The Live Your Dream Award starts at the club level where award amounts vary. Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland will provide cash awards (amount to be determined) to eligible applicants. Club-level recipients then become eligible for region level awards granted in each of Soroptimist’s 28 regions. The first-place region recipients then become candidates for one of three $10,000 finalist awards.
