            Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and need financial help to continue their education or training can apply for this year’s Soroptimist “Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women.”

            The Kawartha Lakes Soroptimist Club will provide a cash grant of up to

$1,500 to a worthy applicant, who will then advance to the Eastern Canada regional level, to apply for an additional $5,000.

            The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.

            Recipients can use the “Live Your Dream Award” to offset costs of pursuing higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, childcare, transportation or any other education related expense.

            The local Soroptomist club (sikawarthalakes.org ) was founded in 2011 as part of international organization with 76,000 members in 120 countries. The local group has given $4,750 to six women over the last five years. Two of the winners went on to receive regional awards of $3,000 and $5,000.

            Applications are available from Jo-Ellen Abercrombie at 705-328-1144. The deadline to apply is Nov. 15.
