Soroptimist of Laramie is offering local women the chance to receive money that will help better the lives of themselves and those that depend on them.

Applications are now being accepted for the Live Your Dream Award. Applicants can receive up to $2000 to help offset the costs of items and services needed for higher education such as textbooks, transportation, and childcare. The money is given as a gift, and will not be limited in the presence of scholarships and is generally not considered income. Eligibility requirements include:

  • Provide primary support for themselves and their dependents. Dependents may include children, spouses, and parents
  • Be accepted to or enrolled in an undergraduate degree program or a vocational training program
  • Not have previously received the Live Your Dream Award

The application can be found online by clicking this link. In addition to the application form, applicants will need two references from individuals not related to them. The reference form can also be found on the Soroptimist of Laramie website. Though the application states the due date as November 15th, the Laramie organization has set a local deadline of December 15th.
