Live Your Dreams Award
The Live Your Dreams Award is not a scholarship; rather it is a program that provides cash grants to women who are working to better their lives through additional skills training and education. The successful female applicant must be a woman with primary financial responsibility for herself and her dependents, be attending or enrolled in an undergraduate degree program or a vocational skills training program, and have financial need.
