Adopted youth come from all different backgrounds, such as foster care, direct adoptions at birth, and more.
Regardless of the guardian or family a child is adopted by, they may face struggles throughout life such as trauma from previous living situations, limited financial resources, etc. In order to build a better future, it’s critical that adoptees have all of the resources and encouragement they need to attain their degrees.
This scholarship seeks to support adoptees as they prepare to pursue higher education so they have all of the resources necessary to achieve their goals.
Any adopted student who is an undergraduate in a two or four-year program may apply for this scholarship, but students of Eastern European descent are preferred.
To apply, tell us about yourself, how being adopted has impacted your life, and what you’ve done to support the adoption community.
