Soroptimist International of Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino is taking applications for women who are eligible to apply for “Live Your Dream”education and training cash awards. The process begins at the club level, where monetary awards are given in descending order, from first to fifth place. The first place award recipient becomes eligible to receive a more substantial Region level cash award if she is again chosen as the first place winner. As the first place winner at the Region level, she advances to the Federation level, where she may receive one of three Federation cash awards.
The Live Your Dream Awards are unique educational grants for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. Eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to either a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate a financial need.
Live Your Dream Awards give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects. Recipients may use the cash award to offset any cost associated with their efforts to attain higher education, including books, childcare, and transportation.
If applicants meet the eligibility requirements as delineated at bit.ly/LYDA-apply,they may complete the application. Applications are accepted until Nov. 15.
