Lake Arrowhead, CA – Soroptimist International of Rim of the World is offering cash grant awards to women who are looking to further their education, or who wish to gain additional skills and training.
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women begins at the local Soroptimist club-level, where award amounts vary. Local-level award recipients become eligible for region-level awards of either $3,000 or $5,000. Region-level award recipients then become eligible to receive one of three international-level awards of $10,000.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
The Live Your Dream awards are open to women who are the primary sources of financial support for their families and who wish to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
Funds can be used to offset the cost of tuition, books, childcare, carfare and other education-related expenses.
HELPING WOMEN TO LIVE THEIR DREAMS
Since 1972, Soroptomist International has awarded over $30 million to women seeking a better life for themselves and their families.
Many award recipients have overcome crippling poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, and drug and alcohol addiction.
Applications can be obtained at: http://www.soroptimist.org/awards/english/application.pdf.
