Live Your Dream

These awards improve the lives of women by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects. Each year, more than 700 Soroptimist clubs in 21 countries and territories assist women in overcoming personal difficulties and improving their lives by gaining education and skills training. The women, who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, including books, childcare and transportation. Club recipients become eligible for additional cash awards at other levels of the organization, including three $10,000 finalist awards. Each year, Soroptimist around the world awards more than $2.6 million in education grants to over 1,650 women.

Population(s) Served

Honors a woman who is enrolled in a university degree program, i.e., Bachelor, Master or Doctorate program and shows effort toward scholarship and has done volunteer work in the community and/or school and has a financial need.

Population(s) Served

Career Support for Girls gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse. By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future. Putting them on a path will help them realize their dreams.

Population(s) Served

Acknowledges a woman who has made a significant difference improving the lives of women and girls in her community.

Population(s) Served

Often the abilities and ambitions of local Soroptimist clubs exceed their financial resources. To help clubs meet community need, Soroptimist introduced the Soroptimist Club Grants for Women and Girls in 1997 to assist with community service projects that improve the lives of women and girls. The Soroptimist organization funds about $175,000 each year in Soroptimist Club Grants. Recent projects include providing resources for immigrant women fleeing domestic violence; funding a micro-enterprise artisan project for low-income women; providing reproductive health services for women in poverty; and teaching marketable job skills to girls with disabilities.
