Many of these scholarships cover tuition cost, living expenses, care packages, and online mentorship. These scholarships are available to first-time college students and adoptees that are currently enrolled in college. Please read the guidelines to each scholarship for details.
You may come across scholarships that will ask you to talk about your feelings or experience as an adoptee or foster kid, please do not let it deter you from applying. I know how difficult it can be because I was there before. I know how hard it is even today to share my adoption experience. However, I encourage you to be bold and step out on faith and apply. These scholarships were created for us, adoptees, don’t let these resources slip away from you. I also encourage you to be fearless and tell your story. Don’t let any doubt build up in your mind that you will not win or that you are not worthy of winning scholarship money because you are worthy of winning scholarships and so much more in your life.
I won over $140,000 in scholarship money for college telling my story. I never believed college was for me. I had low self-esteem and low expectations for my life because I was an adoptee. However, I realized my story had power and yours does too! I want to see you live your best life. I want to see you live out your dream. Be all that you dream of being no matter your beginning.
I believe in YOU!
