Doherty (18) has nine League goals in the WNL this year, and also helped Sligo reach the quarter-final of the EVOKE.ie FAI Women's Cup.
The Republic of Ireland Women's Under-19 international recently received a first call-up to the Home-Based Training Sessions, run by WNT Manager Vera Pauw and her staff, at the FAI National Training Centre.
Bohemians progressed to the last-four after a 3-1 win over Sligo Rovers.
Doherty wins the WNL Award at the same time that Sligo Rovers frontman Aidan Keena collects the SSE Airtricity Soccer Writers' Ireland Award for July. This is a first for the one club to win both the women's and men's prizes.
