Education is an important part of life. In baseball terms, it gives you a healthy lead as you round the bases. But not everyone gets the same opportunity for higher education. The UMPS CARE Charities All-Star Scholarship is for children adopted later in life in order to help provide a college education to students who otherwise might not be able to afford one. UMPS CARE Charities will award a total of $30,000 in scholarship funding for 2018.
All-Star Scholarships are open to children adopted at or after the age of 13 to provide increased opportunities for advanced education. Each year, one student will be selected to receive the All-Star Scholarship. This student will be eligible to receive up to $10,000 annually to go towards tuition, books, and other college related expenses.
Applicants must have been adopted at or after the age of thirteen.
Demonstrate financial need through the FAFSA Application.
Applicants must be incoming freshman.
