The mission of Soroptomist International of Rio Vista is to advance the status of women. This is accomplished through financial support, to women in the last year of their doctoral degree. A by-product of this support is affirmation of the importance of the recipients work and value as an individual. Our hope is to support women who are working in fields that have great social importance to the world. We hope that the recipient's work reflects and furthers Soroptimist ideals. We believe that these women will become a strong voice for all women.
The Endowment Fund offers fellowships for women enrolled in a graduate school within our Region and who are in the last year of their doctoral program. These grants-in-aid are proffered to assist women in the completion of their doctoral degrees.
