Soroptimist International of Carson City extends scholarship deadline
Soroptimist International of Carson City has extended the application deadline for its Live Your Dream Award to Dec. 16.
Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can now apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Award for Women (formerly the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Award).
The Live Your Dream Award starts at the club level, where award amounts vary. Club-level recipients then become eligible for region-level awards granted in each of Soroptimist’s 28 regions. First-place region recipients then become candidates for one of three $10,000 finalist awards. Recipients can use the award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, transportation, or any other education-related expense. Carson City applicants may qualify for a club Tuition Scholarship as well.
Since the program’s inception in 1972, approximately $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families.
