Many birth mothers take this time to consider what they want their future to look like and to set some goals. If your goals include furthering your education through community college, university, or a trade school, we would like to help. Our scholarships for women program is available to any birth mother that has placed a child for adoption any time after 1990. (Records prior to this year are difficult to verify. For this reason, this date was chosen when we started offering help to birth mothers.) We must have verification of the adoption from the adoption professional that handled the adoption. A woman whose adoption has not been legally finalized is not eligible for the birth mother scholarship.
