Through November 15th applications are being accepted for the Live Your Dream Award with a club award of $2000. We have received one application to date through the new SIA Application Portal.
We believe that education is the most powerful tool for women to transform their lives. Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.
Eligible applicants must provide the primary financial support for their families, be enrolled in or accepted to a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program, and must demonstrate financial need.
Our Live Your Dream Awards provide grants to women who have overcome obstacles and are trying to get their lives back on track, build a better life and lift themselves and their families out of poverty through education and skills training.
Please help spread the word by directing potential applicants to the application link at www.lagrandesoroptimist.org. Contact committee chair Rebecca for a poster advertising the award if you have a public place to hang one!
