MOORHEAD - Moorhead Soroptimist International is looking to help women who go to school while also financially supporting their families.

The club will award cash grants as part of the 2018 "Live Your Dream Awards" program. Two women who either live or go to school in Minnesota will be chosen to receive $1,000 each.

Applicants must provide primary financial support to family members while attending undergraduate educational or training programs at trade schools, technical colleges, community colleges or universities. The money awarded can be used for any cost associated with attending school, including day care. The first-place entry will be forwarded to the North Central Region competition where one woman is awarded an additional $5,000.
