2019 Holt Adoptee Scholarship Contest

We are excited to announce the third annual Holt International Scholarship contest!

Three adoptees will each win $500, thanks to the generous contributions of donors.

This opportunity is open to any adoptee who is a 2019 high school graduate planning to attend higher education, or any adoptee currently enrolled in a university, trade school, technical training program or other eligible educational pursuit.

To apply, please send your contact information to Holt International, along with an artistic expression of the following:

If you were to register for an “Adoptee 101” class next fall, what would it teach you? Who would teach it? Why? 

Examples of submissions could be a creative video, illustration, musical composition, photo or series of photos, written essay of 1,000 words or less, or filmed live performance — such as an original song or dance. The format for submission is flexible.

The winners and their submission will be featured in at least one Holt International print or digital publication, as well as our social media pages.

Submissions are due by July 1, 2019.

Please email submissions of photos, videos and essays to Steve Kalb at stevek@holtinternational.org. Please mail traditional art and mixed media submissions to Holt International at the following address –

For non-essay submission, please include a brief artist statement describing your piece (200 words or less). If you have any questions about a submission medium, eligibility or disbursement of funds, please contact Steve Kalb at stevek@holtinternational.org.

Thank you and we’re looking forward to reviewing all these wonderful stories!
