Financial Help for Single WomenDTDAwardApplicationCalgary.pdf

Soroptimist International of Calgary has an award to help women - just like you who have the courage and determination to better their lives by continuing their education.

Perhaps We Can Help

Soroptimist Dare to Dream Award for Women is a $1000 cash award that recipients may use to offset any costs associated with their efforts to obtain an education, including books, tuition, transportation and more.

The award is directed at single women who want to upgrade their education at a university or college, or who, for whatever reason, find that they are lacking in the basic education of high school diploma, or are new to Canada and must improve their English education in order to enter the workforce in their chosen field. It also targets women who find themselves lacking in the skills needed to find a better career, so want to enter a skills training program.

Program Structure

Soroptimist International of Calgary will accept applications from August 1 to January 20 of the following year. Applications will be judged, and the winner will be notified by early March. The award will be presented at an event honouring all award winners of Soroptimist International of Calgary’s awards program in April of each year.
