The Dixon club will provide a $2,000 cash grant to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Soroptimist Founder Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards.
If you are attending college or a training program and are in your 2nd, 3rd or 4th year of study and need financial support you may apply for the “Women Supporting Women Award.” The applicants for this award do not have to have dependents but do show a financial need.
