Applications accepted for Women’s Opportunity Awards

The program will award a $2,500 grant to the selected recipient.

Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to go back to school can now obtain applications for the Women’s Opportunity Awards, Soroptimist International of Abbotsford-Mission’s major service project.

The award can be used for any education-related expense. The local club will provide a $2,500 grant to its recipient, who will then advance to the Western Canada level, where one recipient will receive $5,000. The program culminates in three $10,000 awards.

Applications are available at the financial assistance office at UFV, or by contacting Linda Gertsen at siabbotsford.mission@soroptimist.net. Applications are due Dec. 15.
