Soroptimist International of Ogden - Live Your Dream Award
Soroptimist International of Ogden (SIO) is a volunteer organization for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls in the local community. Each year, thousands of determined women have left behind lives filled with poverty, domestic violence, and substance abuse in order to turn their lives around and pursue their dreams. Our signature program is our Live Your Dream Education and Training Award (grant). The grants are designed to recognize women who are struggling to improve their economic status by gaining additional skills, training, or education and could use additional cash to put toward tuition, books, supplies, child care or transportation costs. This is not a scholarship award but, rather a cash award to help offset costs. Recipients will receive a cash award from Soroptimist International of Ogden club partially funded by United Way of Northern Utah.
