Cody Soroptimist Club offering $6k grant

Cody, Wyoming— Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can now apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women (formerly the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards). The Cody Soroptimist Club will provide a $6,000 cash grant to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Soroptimist Rocky Mountain Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards. Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, carfare or any other education-related expense. The Live Your Dream Award provides more than $1.6 million in cash grants to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program’s inception in 1972, approximately $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. Applications are available at Cody Soroptimist website www.codysoroptimist.org, or by contacting Jami Gillett at 406.794.7064 or email jami.gillett@gmail.com. The application deadline is November 15, 2015. *featured image h/t Cody Soroptimist Club / Pitchengine Communities* #reboot
