Each year, Soroptimist International of Glendale presents the Live Your Dream Award (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Award) to a woman who is the primary breadwinner for her family. The award comes with a cash grant. Awardees must be enrolled in or accepted into a vocational or skills training program, or an undergraduate degree program. Recipients, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol abuse, may use the awards to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare and transportation.
Applications deadline is Nov. 15 and the awardee will be presented at the Soroptimist International of Glendale Accolades Awards luncheon on Thursday, March 19, 2015.
