Summer Hosting Adoption Scholarships

GWCA/CAN is SUPER excited to announce that we are giving away up to $25,000 in ADOPTION SCHOLARSHIPS for the 2014 SUMMER HOST CHILDREN! This applies to any families that move forward to adopt a child they host from the 2014 Summer China or Philippines hosting programs. Every sibling group in the Philippines WILL have a scholarship. Scholarship amounts are subject to a committee decision on amounts and who receives the scholarship.

Get Started!

  • Families must submit proof of income, scholarship application form and motivation letter to be considered.
  • Families must be adopting through the 2014 Summer China and Philippines hosting programs. Scholarships are not applicable to past host families or for any children who were not hosted.
  • Families must have turned in an agency application and contract to adopt in order to be granted a scholarship prior to August 15th.

Early applications will be accepted and given special consideration (an agency application and contract can be turned in at any time before August 15th, however scholarship applications will not be reviewed until these are received.)
Scholarship awards will be announced by August 29th and recipients will receive a notification from GWCA/CAN. Scholarship applications will be distributed to families who have applied to adopt through GWCA/CAN. Please contact your adoption counselor for a scholarship application if you have already applied to adopt through GWCA/CAN.

      Hi Amy,
      In order to participate in the hosting program you will first want to get in touch with the staff at New Horizons for Children.

    This sounds like an amazing program.Can families chose the gender of the child? Age range, and special need? Are there many children or is the child chosen for the family?

    Thank you,

      Hi AnnMarie,
      New Horizons for Children is our participating hosting organization. They coordinate the initial hosting. If you contact them you can then see all of the children available for hosting and they should be able to get you started.

      Thank you!
