Women who are the heads of their households, and have primary financial responsibility for themselves and their dependents may be eligible for a Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award.

Women who are the heads of their households, and have primary financial responsibility for themselves and their dependents may be eligible for a cash grant of $2,000 for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award. Applicants must be attending an undergraduate degree program or a vocational skills training program and require financial assistance.

The grants can be used to offset costs of higher education or training and associated expenses, such as books, child care and transportation.

Since 1972, the Live Your Dream Award (formerly known as the Women’s Opportunity Award or WOA) has helped women in the workforce who are interested in upgrading their education or skills to improve their employment prospects.

The application deadline is Dec. 15 (applications must be postmarked by that date).

Fillable applications, reference forms and eligibility checklist are available on the Soroptimist International of Maui website.
