Live Your Dream Awards

Our recipients have been selected! Congratulations to Terecita Lopez, Samantha Morales, and Brenee Spears for receiving SI Davis’ 2018 Live Your Dream Awards.

Soroptimist International knows education is the tool to achieving women’s social and economic empowerment. This is why clubs nationwide invest more than $2.4 million in education grants to 1,500 women every year through the Live Your Dream: Education & Training Awards for Women program.

 All of the women we support through the Live Your Dream Awards provide the primary financial support for their families while working towards a college degree or gaining skills through specialized training programs. Most of these women are also survivors who have overcome enormous adversity in their lives.

The Live Your Dream Awards are unique because they enable recipients full financial autonomy to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or skills training, such as tuition, books, childcare and transportation.
