How does the Student Adoption Program work?

Our office will match you with a congregation, church group, or individual wishing to adopt a student. Student Adoption provides supplemental financial support to your regular financial aid and, in addition, allows you to meet new friends through your thank-you notes, emails, or telephone calls with your donors.

To participate, please complete the online Application for Student Adoption. Note: M.Div., A.R., and Deaconess students may apply for the Student Adoption Program. When you sign up for Student Adoption, you accept the responsibility to send thank-you notes and/or letters regularly and at a minimum of once each quarter (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Students who fail to correspond with their donors will be terminated from the program. You must register online for the Student Adoption Program each year that you participate.
