4. Applicants must be drug free and have a current C (or higher) grade point average.


5. Applicant must be a birth mother that has placed a child for adoption any time after 1990. Records prior to this year are difficult to verify.

A woman whose adoption has not been legally finalized is not eligible for the purposes of this scholarship.
