Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $2.8 million in education awards to about 1,700 women all over the world.
Over half of our Live Your Dream Awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual assault. Nearly all of the women and families we 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.
Education is the pathway to economically empowering women and girls.
*When women learn families live healthier lives
*When girls go to school they are more likely to get paying jobs and their financial contributions to their families—and their nations—increase
*When girls have educated moms they are more likely to be enrolled in school and to reach higher levels of education
*When women are educated their countries are more likely to have greater economic growth
This educational award is to support a woman attending any type of education, she must be head of household, and with dependents.
