Live Your Dream Awards are our Soroptimist signature program. Each year, these awards help women with the resources they need to improve their education and employment prospects.  Applications for 2020-2021 are now open.  The deadline to apply is November 15, 2020. To see if you or someone you know is eligible, or to apply for an award, visit the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award Portal.

Live Your Dream Award

Each year we select women in the Tucson area who have primary financial responsibility for supporting their dependents AND are enrolled in a vocational training program or an undergraduate degree program.

The Live Your Dream Awards program, (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Award), assists women who have overcome tremendous obstacles in life (abuse, homelessness, etc.) to go back to school to create their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. Read the inspiring stories of some of our winners. If you would like to help women like our award recipients, consider making a tax-deductible donation

Each year, Soroptimists award over $2.0 million to more than 1,500+ women in Soroptimist’s 19 member countries and territories. The women receiving these financial awards may use them for any costs associated with their educational efforts, including tuition, books, child care, and transportation.
