Live Your Dream Awards


Since 1972, Live Your Dream Awards is Soroptimist’s major women’s education program. Participating in this instrumental program, clubs have made a BIG difference in the lives of women and their families. Many recipients gone on to accomplish great things in their lives and community.  

               What We Do

Soroptimist's Live Your Dream Awards program is a unique education award for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. The Live Your Dream Awards give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.

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, and drug or alcohol addiction. Live Your Dream Awards 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.
