For National Adoption Day, we’re celebrating our adopted members!

While nearly 150,000 children are adopted in the United States each year, our media and culture rarely talks about this important group of people.

To help support awareness about and opportunities for adoptees, has created the Adopted Student Scholarship. The scholarship exists to amplify the stories of individuals who have been adopted and to provide more equal access to opportunities in education. 

To apply for the scholarship, you will need to write a short essay about your experience as an adoptee, the challenges you have faced, and how these challenges have shaped your worldview.

The scholarship will be awarded on November 23rd, the Monday following National Adoption Day (November 21st). will be awarding a scholarship each day in November to celebrate National Scholarship Month. Follow along on's Instagram and TikTok for daily announcements of scholarships and winners!
