Women who serve as primary wage earners for their families and need financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can now apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women.
Applications are available at www.vacavillesoroptimist.org. The deadline to apply is Nov. 15.
The Vacaville club will award between $1,000 to $5,000 to its award recipient, who will advance to the Soroptimist Founder Region level, where recipients could receive an additional $5,000. The program culminates at Soroptimist International of the Americas (SIA) with a lucky recipient receiving $10,000.
The Live Your Dream Award can be used to offset costs associated with higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense.
