Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training are invited to apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women.

The Soroptimist club will provide a $2,000 cash grant to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Soroptimist Region level, where one recipient will receive $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.

Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training, including tuition, books, child care, car fare or any other education-related expense.

The Live Your Dream Award provides more than $1.6 million in cash grants to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program’s inception in 1972, approximately $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families.

Applications are available only online at www.soroptimist.org and must be submitted by Nov. 15. For application questions contact Amy Stubblefield at 541-398-1068 or Ann Browder at 541-426-3204 or aebrowder@gmail.com.
