Live Your Dream Award
The Live Your Dream Award is the Soroptimist’s signature project. Every year, these awards help give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects. SIDT is proud to have helped over 75 women in the last 35 years.
Applications are closed. Please join us in honoring our winners on Thursday, March 16, 2017
Each year we select women in the Tucson area who are providing primary support for their dependents AND are enrolled in or have been accepted to a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program.
The Live Your Dream Awards program, (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Award), was established in 1972 to assist women with primary financial responsibility for their families to obtain the skills-training and education necessary to improve their employment status and standard of living for themselves and their family.
Each year, $1.5 million in club, region and international funds are awarded to more than 1,500 women in Soroptimist’s 19 member countries and territories. The women receiving these financial awards may use them for any costs associated with their educational efforts, including tuition, books, child care, and transportation. The chosen recipient of SI of Desert Tucson’s monetary Live Your Dream Award will also be considered for additional awards at the regional and international levels.
