ABOUT LIVE YOUR DREAM AWARDS

student groupx

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) assist 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.

Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $2.6 million in education grants 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.

Why we do it

Education is the pathway to economically empowering women and girls
