50th Anniversary of Live Your Dream Awards

Updated: Sep 1

Women who are eligible can apply for the Live Your Dream Education & Training Awards for Women between August 1 – November 15, 2022.



Soroptimist's Live Your Dream Awards program is a unique education award for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. Live Your Dream Award recipients can use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.



Empowering Through Education

By empowering women to change their lives, the Live Your Dream Awards:

  • Give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.

  • Pave the way for new generations of independent, educated and financially secure women to make a better life for themselves and their families.

  • Inspire women to give back to their communities in return.

THE ONLINE APPLICATION PORTAL IS OPEN UNTIL NOVEMBER 15, 2022

Celebrating 50 Years of Live Your Dream

Since 1972, Soroptimist worldwide has distributed more than $30 million in education awards to 30,000 women who are now making a better life for themselves and their families.


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 or drug and alcohol addiction.


As Soroptimists, we invest in women's education because it transforms lives and communities.


During SI of Three Rivers’ 20-year history, we gave 20 Live Your Dreams Awards totaling $38,000 to local women working to better their lives through education and skills training. You could be next!
