Soroptimist scholarships support women’s continuing education
Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to go back to school can now obtain applications for the Women’s Opportunity Awards, one of Soroptimist International of Carson City’s service projects.
The Women’s Opportunity Awards program provides women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families with the financial resources to offset costs associated with attaining higher education or additional skills and training. The award can be used for tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense.
The award amount varies, but a minimum of $500 will be provided. One award recipient will advance to the Soroptimist Sierra Nevada Region level, where one recipient will receive $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.
Applications are available at http://www.sicarsoncity.org.
Visit the Awards, Grants & Scholarship page to download the application.
