This grant will be given to start up or continue a club project that
benefits women and girls. Total budget for club grants is
$1,000-$2,000 dependent on available funds. Proposal
should request a specific amount starting at $500 (in $100
increments) and the budget tailored accordingly not to exceed
$1,000. The number of grants given will be based on requested
amounts and what projects the judges select as finalists. It is estimated
that 2-4 clubs may be recipients of grants in the amount of
$500-$1,000 based on funds budgeted for the club year. A club’s
“Dream It, Be It” program would likely qualify.
Live Your Dream Awards:
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s
Opportunity Awards) assists women who provide the primary source of
financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve
their career goals by giving them the resources they need to improve
their education, skills and employment prospects.
In addition to providing the primary financial
support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in,
or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an
undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.
The program begins at the local Soroptimist club
level where the amount of the award is determined by each
individual club. Each club winner is then forwarded for judging on
the Region level where one winner is chosen to receive a first place
award of $5,000, which is funded by Soroptimist International of the
Americas (SIA). The first place region winner is then sent to SIA to
compete for one of three $10,000 finalist
Each year, Soroptimist International of the Americas awards
in excess of $150,000 in club grants to more than 30
Soroptimist clubs that are initiating or continuing
innovative projects that benefit women and girls.
