In 1973, Loretta Webb Green became the first single African American woman in Georgia to adopt a child.
This groundbreaking adoption created a better life for her daughter who otherwise may not have escaped the foster care system and went on to achieve her education. Foster children often have less access to education due to lower-quality secondary education, a lack of family guidance and mentorship, and limited financial resources, which can result in a lifetime of struggles.
This scholarship aims to honor Loretta Webb Green by supporting BIPOC students who have been in the foster care system.
Any BIPOC undergraduate student who has been in the foster care system may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us what your goals are for your education and how being a foster child impacted these goals.
What do you plan to accomplish through your continued education? How has your experience with being a foster child shaped these goals?
