HomeGood - LYD

Soroptimist International of Las Cruces proudly participates in the global Live Your Dream Award program. In 2019-20 we recognized five women from Southern New Mexico and West Texas with awards ranging from $1500 to $500. The LYD awards are designed to assist women pursuing post-secondary education or training  while they also provide primary financial support for their families. Award recipients may use the award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition, and transportation.

Since 1972, we've distributed more than $30 million

in education grants to 30,000 women
making a better life for themselves and their families.

We invest in women's education because it
transforms lives and communities. 

The Live Your Dream Awards
has been recognized for its 
effectiveness and long-term impact.
