Soroptimist of the Americas improves the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Soroptimist Dream Programs ensure women and girls have access to the education and training they need to reach their full potential and live their dreams. The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards for Women (formerly the Soroptimist Women Opportunity Awards) provides women who serve as the primary wage earners or head of household for their families with the financial resources to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education and additional skills and training.
Recipients can use the award for tuition, books, childcare, bus or carfare or any other education-related expense. Each year, more than $1.6 million is provided in cash grants to women in need. Since this program’s inception in 1972, approximately $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women.
