'Live Your Dream' Award:
The 'Live Your Dream' (formerly known as the 'Women’s Opportunity Award' program was established in 1972 to assist women with primary financial responsibility for their families to obtain the skills-training and education necessary to improve their employment status and standard of living for themselves and their family. Each year, $1.5 million in club, region and federation funds are awarded to more than 1,500 women in SIA’s 19 member countries and territories. The women receiving these financial awards may use them for any costs associated with their educational efforts, including tuition, books, child care, and transportation.
