soroptimist live your dream logoThe Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards program (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) has disbursed more than $30 million since 1972 to tens of thousands of women who have overcome poverty, domestic and sexual violence, divorce, the death of a spouse, or other life challenges.

Through the Live Your Dream Awards, the Soroptimist International of Oakland has assisted women entering or re-entering the workforce to obtain the education and skills training they need to improve their employment status. The award is a $2,000 scholarship for a returning woman student with dependents, either undergrad or graduate, enrolled this year. The first-place recipients then compete nationally for one of three $10,000 finalist awards. The cash awards may be used for any expenses related to educational pursuits.

For more information, visit the Soroptimist website. The application is due November 15, 2015.
