Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner (SITD) is offering grants up to $2,000 for women to continue their education or training. Youth don't always know what they want to do at 18 when most scholarships are awarded, and life experience may lead a person to want to change or advance their career opportunities later in life. We want to make sure that women have the finances to make advancements in their training or education. For example, applicants have requested money to get paralegal certification and to transfer to a four-year college after finishing a two-year program. Applications are due by May 15th. Go to www.SITD.infofor an on-line application. This year's grant is also supported by the Truckee Airport District.
