Pearl S Buck firmly believed that every child should have the opportunity to receive an education. It is in this spirit that the Mabel Lew Trust donated $100,000 to Pearl S. Buck International in 1997 to establish a scholarship program in the name of Mabel Lew. College students or college bound high school seniors who were adopted through our Welcome House adoption program are eligible to apply for the $5,000 one-time scholarship.
The award criteria set up by the Trust stipulates that applicants should be gifted, economically disadvantaged, Asian-descended Welcome House adoptees who are US citizens. The award will be paid directly to the educational institution and will only be valid for a four-year undergraduate degree program.
Application deadline is March 3 at 5:00 pm. More information on the scholarship can be found at www.pearlsbuck.org/scholarship.
