The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.  Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.


In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.

Soroptimist International of Eugene usually grants two awards; a first and second place recipient.  First place award recipients will be eligible for a regional award, and the regional winner then becomes eligible to receive one of three $10,000 finalist awards.

Soroptimist is helping women reclaim their dreams.  If you’re eligible, be sure to apply for this award. You will need to complete the application form and two (2) reference forms. Access the application forms here.
