Live Your Dream
Over half of the Soroptimist International 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 Award 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.
Each year, more than $2.8 million in education grants are disbursed through the Live Your Dream Awards program to over 1,700 women, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, the death of a spouse, and/or substance abuse. Each Soroptimist Club will give at least one LYD award each year that is eligible to compete for a Regional and possibly an international award.
