Live Your Dream: Education & Training Awards for Women

The Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Soroptimist Women's Opportunity Awards program) assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects. Each year, more than 1,300 women reclaim their dreams through this program, which provides $1.7 million in education grants for women annually. The program is unique because it allows recipients, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic and sexual violence, and drug and alcohol abuse, to use the awards to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or skills training, such as tuition, books, childcare and transportation.

What can you do to help women gain access to education?

Get started...

Spread awareness about this life-changing program by being a social media activist, printing and posting flyers around town, sending an email to local organizations in your community, becoming a mentor or making a lasting impact. Start here!

Explore opportunities for taking action and read inspiring stories from some of our past award recipients.
