2016 Live Your Dream winner, Jezelle Nelson

Since 1972, the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards
program (formerly the Women’s Opportunity
Awards) has disbursed more than $30 million to
tens of thousands of women who have overcome poverty,
domestic and sexual violence, divorce, the death of a spouse,
or other life challenges. They are women—just like you—
who had the courage and determination to turn their lives


Recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs
associated with their efforts to attain higher education,
including books, childcare and transportation. The program
begins on the club level, where award amounts vary. Club
recipients become eligible to receive region-level awards,
which are granted through Soroptimist’s 28 geographic
regions. Currently, each Soroptimist region grants one first place
award for $5,000.

Applications and references must be signed and received by 11/15/2016.
