Soroptimist International of Saratoga County
to award up to $5,000 for
Soroptimist “Live Your Dream” Awards

Women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families are encouraged to apply for the Soroptimist “Live Your Dream” Award. Soroptimist International of Saratoga
County, an international volunteer organization for business and professional women, is offering grants up to $5,000 to be used for expenses related to education. In addition to being
the primary wage earner, applicants must:

  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Be accepted or enrolled in an undergraduate or vocational skills training program
  • Be a resident of any of the locations where there is a Soroptimist Club
  • Not have previously been a recipient of this award

If you meet these criteria and wish to apply for this grant, please go to www.soroptimistsaratoga.org. Under “Awards” select “Live Your Dream.” This will take you to the on-line application. Applications must be completed by November 15, 2021. Soroptimist members and their immediate family are ineligible.

For individual assistance with the application process, you can contact the Saratoga County Soroptimist Club by e-mailing liveyourdreamsaratoga@gmail.com to request a mentor.

Research on the impact of the “Live Your Dream” Award has shown that investing in educational opportunities for women results in a “multiplier” effect for their families and communities. Not only does this program enable women to secure higher paying employment and a raised standard of living, it increases the likelihood that their children will obtain an education and secure a future of economic independence and success.

The Saratoga County Chapter provides grants up to $5,000 per award winner. Our first-place award recipient is also eligible for additional monetary awards at the regional and international
Soroptimist levels. These funds can be used for tuition, books, childcare, transportation expense or any other education-related expense.

Soroptimist International of Saratoga County is part of an international women’s organization with 72,000 members in 121 countries and territories. Soroptimist uses its international voice and official status with the United Nations to advocate on behalf of women’s issues.
