Soroptimist International of the Sierras is now taking applications for ‘Live Your Dream’ college grants for women who seek to improve their lives with the help of additional education and training.
The Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards for Women have been given out by Soroptimists since 1972, distributing more than $25 million to tens of thousands of women across the country so they can reach their educational goals.
The cash grants can be used to offset any costs associated with attaining a higher education, including books, childcare and transportation. Club recipients become eligible to receive additional region-level awards.
The application, plus two reference forms must be submitted by Nov. 15 to: Soroptimist International of The Sierras, Club President Joelle Leder, P.O. Box 41, Oakhurst CA., 93644.
