The Live Your Dream Education and Training Award is Soroptimist International of the America's signature award program supported by clubs like ours throughout the Federation. Soroptimist International of the Kachinas gives a cash award annually to a woman who is the primary financial support of her family (children, spouse, or parents) and who is enrolled in, or has been accepted to, an undergraduate degree program or a vocational/skills training program.
Applicant must demonstrate financial need and must not be seeking a graduate degree. Unlike a traditional scholarship, this award is given to the woman to use as she chooses. The minimum award amount is $1,000 and the winner is eligible to receive awards at the Region and Federation levels of $3,000 and $10,000, respectively.
