Education & Training Awards for Women

Soroptimist Live your Dream annually awards about $2.5 million in education grants to about 1,500 women who have overcome enormous personal obstacles including poverty, sex trafficking and domestic violence. 

 

Recipients may use the cash grants to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain additional education or training. 

 

Award recipients go on to enjoy improved employment prospects, greater earning potential, higher self-esteem, and serve as positive role models for their children.
