Soroptimist International of Boise is one of nearly 1,500 clubs that make up Soroptimist International of the Americas, a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards are cash awards given to motivated women who are the primary financial supporters of their families. These recipients of the awards seek to improve their lives by gaining additional skills, training or education, but do not have the resources to do so. These cash awards are meant to offset any costs associated with the recipient's efforts to attain higher education, including tuition, books, supplies, child care or transportation costs.
The Boise Soroptimist Club Live Your Dream Awards for 2015-16 are: First place - $2,000, Second place - $1,000, and Third place - $1,000. The deadline for submission of an application is November 15, 2015. The winner of the club-level award will become eligible for region-level awards of either $3,000 or $5,000. Region-level First place recipients then become eligible to receive one of the three Soroptimist International of the America's Federation-level awards of $10,000.
