Local women who are pursuing vocational, skills training or an undergraduate degree are encouraged to apply for the Live Your Dream Award through Soroptimist International of the East Valley. Two scholarships will be awarded, one for $1,200 and one for $1,300.
The Live Your Dream Award, one of the Soroptimist signature programs, provides financial assistance to 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, according to a release.
Scholarship applications are due Nov. 15. To apply, or for more information, go to SIEastValley.com.
In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need. Applicants must also be residents of the U.S. or one of the Soroptimist International of the Americas’ member countries and territories.
The first-place recipient of the SIEV Live Your Dream Award will be eligible for the region-level awards; region-level award recipients then become eligible to receive one of three international-level awards.
Soroptimist International is comprised of business and professional individuals striving to improve the lives of women and girls. SIEV participates in local programs that help support the community, with a primary focus on providing access to education for women and girls.
