Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley provides scholarships for female veterans through their "Educating Women to Lead" program.

These scholarships are conferred through the Veterans Resource Center of College of The Canyons, to improve these veterans' education, skills, and employment prospects.  Both Soroptimists clubs of Santa Clarita Valley also directly provide "Live Your Dream" awards to women in our community who are working to overcome life obstacles and are now enrolled in an educational program.  These SCV clubs also offer mentoring and  community engagement to female veterans. Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of  women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.  To obtain further information please contact Renard Thomas, director of the Resource Center at (661)362-3469.
