Why we do it:
Education is the pathway to economically empowering women and girls.
Since it’s chartering in 2015, Soroptimist International Simi Valley has presented over $27,000 in awards. This year we are awarding up to $2,000 to each of our recipients. The first place recipient will become eligible for a region-level award of up to an additional $5,000. Region-level award recipients then become eligible to receive one of three international-level awards of $10,000.
In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.
