FOR A GRADUATING SENIOR
AND A CONTINUING COLLEGE STUDENT
Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoption, Including Neighboring Countries (FRUA) is pleased to announce that this year we are able to continue our scholarship program for the coming academic year. Created in 2009, the FRUA scholarship is the only one of its kind for children adopted from Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and countries of the former Soviet Union.
The FRUA scholarship was designed to recognize a student from a FRUA member family who exhibits academic success, participates in extra-curricular or community activities, and articulates the influence adoption has had his or her life. Scholarship recipients to date have come from several Eastern European countries and many overcame significant challenges to succeed in high school and pursue their studies at excellent academic institutions.
This year FRUA will offer two scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year:
One scholarship of $1250 to a graduating senior, meeting the adoptive country criteria, whose family holds a FRUA membership in good standing;
One scholarship of $750 for a continuing college student, meeting the adoptive country criteria, whose family holds a FRUA membership in good standing.

"Over the years, applicants have been of such high caliber, and many have overcome signifigant challenges. We are delighted to support their post-secondary education This scholarship is one of the many unique benefits of a FRUA membership."
This is the fifth year that FRUA has offered student scholarships; we were not able to last year due to a lack of resources, both donations to fill the scholarship fund and a scholarship committee.
