Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $2.6 million in education grants to about 1,700 women all over the world. Over half of the Live Your Dream Awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual assault. Nearly all of the women and families they serve have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, teen pregnancy, and drug or alcohol addiction. Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.
You are eligible to apply if you:
are a woman with primary financial responsibility for yourself and your dependents
are attending an undergraduate degree program or a vocational skills training program
If you wish to donate to support the Live Your Dream grants, a donation minimum of $20 through A Sweet Treat for a Great Cause will provide funds for the Live You Dream scholarships, while you receive a gift of homemade toffee and holiday themed face masks
