FRUA Academic Scholarship Program for Adopted Children


For the fifth year, FRUA is proud to offer a scholarship program. FRUA will offer two scholarships, each in the amount of $1,000, for the 2013-2014 academic year.

  • ONE scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who will be pursuing post-secondary education in fall 2013 at an accredited two- or four-year college, trade or technical school. The selected student will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
  • ONE scholarship will be awarded to a returning or continuing post-secondary student. Recognizing that most scholarships are for first-year students but education expenses can continue for several years, we will award $1,000 to a student already enrolled in post-secondary education an accredited two or four-year college, trade or technical school.

"FRUA is delighted to continue its scholarship program," says acting National Board Chair Jan Wondra. "Each year the scholarship committee and National Board are thoroughly impressed by the quality, scholarship, talent, and community-mindedness of the applicants. And we are humbled by the insights these young adults share in their essays. It is such a pleasure to be able to recognize students through our scholarship program."

All applicants must be a FRUA member’s dependent child adopted from Eastern Europe/Eurasia/Caucasus.

Applications must be post-marked by March 23, 2013. The FRUA National Board will announce selected recipients by May 22, 2013.
