Applications for the Soroptimist International Live Your Dream Award 2020 are being accepted through November 15, 2020.
The Soroptimist International Club of Toms River is seeking applicants for the Soroptimist International Live Your Dream Award. This award is for women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families. Potential candidates include women who have dependent children, a dependent spouse or dependent parents in their households. The Live Your Dream is an award, not a scholarship, so the money may be used toward the cost of tuition to pursue an Associate’s Degree, vocational program, books, or related expenses such as transportation, childcare, etc.
The application form requires financial information as the award is need based. Requirements include an essay describing the applicant’s goals and explaining why she should receive the award, and two letters of recommendation from non-family members.
The local winner’s application is submitted to Soroptimist International’s Regional award competition, where they become eligible for awards ranging from $3,000 – $ 5,000; the top Regional award applications are then entered into the national $10,000 Federation award competition.
If you are or know a woman who qualifies, applications can be submitted online at: http://www.soroptimist.org/awards/eligibility
Please note the deadline to apply is November 15, 2020.
